Shattered

She smiles down at me.

Her face is brighter than I remember.

Wait!

Why is she floating?

She reads the question on my face

And stretches out her hands.

I stand on my toes to reach back.

I feel a knot in my stomach.

A tightness in my chest.

A choke in my throat.

Her hands are just a couple of inches away.

The pain is increasing

I should be happy!?

In an effort to understand why I am not,

I look down for a second

And when I look back up,

It is in to the darkness of my room.

It hits me then,

That her bright face,

That beautiful smile that

I will always remember,

Was just but a dream

But the pain,

The tightness in my chest,

Is as real

As the darkness in my room.
