Dreams, love and desire all go hand in hand because they all have the same basic ingredient. They all require that we let go of whatever pride, ego or fear is holding us and let our minds or hearts free to do what it is they do. When we dream about our loves and desires it does something to us, it reminds us of just how happy we were or can be.
Getting off work, driving home, I was looking forward to dreaming. To showering, having a cold beer and lying down letting my desires explode thru my imagination. Living the things I write about in my mind for that three of four minutes that we dream. Seeing her naked, pregnant or walking down the aisle. Seeing sand, silk sheets or ocean front views. These are the things I dream about because these are the things I think about.
Sure, I have nightmares and I have them often but I will never let my nightmares dictate what it is I dream about.
If I’m being honest at 4am when I know most people are sleeping peacefully I miss love. Love calms me, it excites me, it motivates the writing and inspires the stories people love to read. Love has the ability to take one word and turn it into a sentence, it has the ability to turn once sentence and turn it into a novel. Sitting at this desk, I wonder is she dreaming about me? Is she going to wake up and read this and smile? I wonder if my dreams and desires will ever become my reality? Dreams are healthy because they inspire us to want what they represent.
I don’t know what the future holds for my thoughts and my being but I know I love the idea of waking up trying to dissect a dream and just what it meant. I love the idea of writing down every detail I could remember. Dreams allow me not to forget her face, her voice, her smile, her laugh. Dreams keep her alive in my world when our worlds no longer collide.
Say hello to the sandman the next time your head hits a pillow and watch your dreams, loves and desires take you to a place you probably forgot existed.
