Last night, after watching Drive, I had an endless nightmare. I woke myself up in fear, and falling asleep again, would be back in the same terror, the same dream. Every hour, until sunrise. Not a poetic inspiration I care to repeat, but, oh well. Whatever it takes.
If nightmares came true, I would not be here with you.
I would be naked in hallways or running from demons
and breathless with fear.
If nightmares came true, he would be here.
Forever my partner, clenching his teeth and sipping my breath,
we would stand frozen and gaze at our deaths.
If nightmares came true, my car would careen.
My home float to sea to follow tsunami,
My life and my dreams forever adrift.
If nightmares came true.
