i saw you in a dream last night, it was almost like i'd wound back the clock. you looked at me that way, that way you always used to look at me, that look told me more than we ever explained. you smiled at me, the way you used to always smile at me, and i smiled back, the way i used to always smile back. you held me in your arms, and you whispered in my ear. the butterflies were bursting out of my stomach, but then a cloud formed over our heads. one moment you were exstatic, it was like i'd wound back the clock, and then the next moment; a single tear dripped off your face, and you said goodbye. it hit me like a thousand knives all over my body, again and again and again. but then i woke up, and remembered reality.
