Only In Dreams - Poem by Noemi Lee

Last night I dreamt
You hugged me.
Or was it I
who hugged you?
I don't remember
and it doesnt matter.

I do remember
your arms around my body
and mine around yours-
the tickle of your soul patch
on my neck.

And it was a long hug,
a close hug,
an- I feel your heartbeat hug
an- I-understand-you-so-completely-
we-dont-even-h ave-to-use-words
hug.

It was a dream hug
and now that I am awake
I know it couldn't get any better
than that.

Because dreams
destroy the barriers
amassed by
an alert mind
upon the opening of
eyelids.
