Sweet Dreams - Poem by Scarlett Treat

He laid his sweet body
Next to mine.
Our legs, and our dreams,
Were intertwined

His arms around me
Were pressed,
And his heart lay
Against my breast.

The air he breathed
Was the breath I took.
We were lovers,
Like the ones in a book.

We two were one
Until the rising sun
Burned the dreams away,
And I faced another day - Alone.
