Only a Dream

Location

I dreamed that you were there.
                                    Beside me.
                  Comforting me.
       As I screamed out in fear.
                      Twisting, turning, thrashing.
Nightmares filling my head.
              Images.
                   That I can't erase.
                              From my mind.
     But then I woke up.
Those nightmares still swimming 
                                  around.
        I reached for you.
                 Arms outstretched.
                             Fingers searching.
And you weren't there.
            Because it was only a dream.
