I Should Have Been Awake - Poem by Victoria Davis

I should have been awake
not dreaming.
They warn, 'if it is too good to be true...'
But is that not the definition of love?

A familiar, costly mistake -
when dreams walk in daylight,
when thoughts bring breath up short.
The storm roars, the sky cries -
rain falls faster than tears can
and still not fast enough.
Still not fast enough.
