this poem is literally written about a dream i had the evening previous. at the time, i was speaking with my current girlfriend but was yet to really make feelings known or act on anything. i don’t think the poem gives justice to the dream i had - i will never forget it; especially the moment she leaned in and lingered for ten or so seconds mumbling sweet things to me before she kissed me. this was also the poem that really started my writing habits again; i was rarely writing before and this really started my inspiration and knack for pen to paper expression.
this is also one of the few poems i have scanned and posted in its original form as it was in the my notebook at the time, usually i edit, write them out separately and neatly, and then scan. i thought at the time that the audience might get a better grasp of my feelings through the original format, raw and unedited.
