We were twenty three and you looked like shots of pure lightning,
Fast and unbridled, bright and mesmerizing,
You held my hand and woke me up,
Took me to the edge of the world
and told me to jump;
I closed my eyes and braced for the fall,
Took a leap like I've never done before,
Hands in the air and your hands in my hair,
Fingers combing through until they find their way
Back to my hands, linking them together
We free fall for days and I think you were like the sun then,
Too warm to touch, to bright to ignore;

We're in a different place now,
A meadow in the middle of nowhere with
Periwinkle skies and crisp-white clouds,
Some hand-written letters, and scattered flowers,
A black tie and a white sun hat
We must be two lovers now;
We must be different people now
Because your eyes are dark blue
And mine became burnt sienna
You look like a fresh daydream and I 
Looked like a fine nightmare--I know because I feel the
Tangles in my hair and the scars on my stomach,
The bloodshot irises and the manic rise and fall of my chest--
If we knew each other then could you tell me so
Because I don't know, do we know each other now?

I close my eyes again and you tell me "Don't, too late,
I arrive at an alleyway where two blocks from here
A protest is breaking out,
The city's holding its breath and coincidence, so am I, 
To the left, people march with picket signs
To the right, the military scatter about in four straight lines,
I am in the middle, thankfully,
Between two brick walls that are perfectly grey,
I wait for your silhouette to fill the space
On the wall and on the ground,
But alas, were you content with being that lover two minutes ago
Who lived in a bright world yet laid down instead of standing strong?
Did you prefer grass instead of concrete, pavement?
Blue skies instead of dark clouds rolling over your head?
Because I'm here waiting for something--
If we knew each other two dreams ago,
And you didn't know me a dream ago,
Would you know me now?
I'm waiting to know.

And I close my eyes again, and I tell myself, "Too late," too early,
Because in the edge of my vision I see you standing,
Saffron irises and all,
Wording something I couldn't quite get,
Just a little whisper, "I'll meet you in the next--"
I open them after a split second, overzealous to see your face
My hands reach out in front of me only to
Let me fall off the bed and meet the wooden floorboards of my 
Low-cost apartment,
It says good morning to me through the leaky ceiling and the
Screeching alarm clock,
I stand up immediately, striding towards the windowsill,
I see Manhattan and absolutely horrid traffic,
I rest my head on the glass and sigh,
My breath fogging over,
And I swear I didn't mean to but I
Close my eyes and think of you
And now you look different,
Saffron together with dark blue,
Lover meets protester,
Standing tall while laying down,
You look like a calmed storm and I 
I feel like an awakened city,
I breathe in the morning and rush through my day,
I'll do my workload and cut open my working-class pay
Buy enough for the week and finally call a plumber to fix that leak,
I'll call my mother and ask how she's doing,
Attend my niece's Parent-Teacher conference and swear to 
Not look for anyone in particular,
I'll come home every night
With a heavy sigh because I'm too tired to think,
I'll trade my corporate attire for pajamas and slippers,

And when I close my eyes
I'll trade this life I'm doing for quite a while,
Wait in the middle of somewhere, nowhere,
For you that looks like shots of pure lightning
And the sun and the dark skies and
All in between,
I'll stand with my arms uncrossed,
And my sun hat poised on my head,
I'll wait for your silhouette, your golden figure,
Because you said you'd meet me,
Because we knew each other that first dream
I'm pretty--quite, possibly, 99.9 percent--sure,
I'd know you anywhere,
When we meet now, I'd meet you for the first time again,
And in the next, I'd meet you still,
I'll never tire, I never will,
I'll say hello until you say my name,
I'll say goodbye too;

And when I'm twenty-four, and when we're through,
I'll wake up, finally, and I'll accept it,
I'm missing you but I know you're in a place I can't reach,
In a place my closed eyes can no longer see,
I'll keep your memories tucked in with me
When I need warmth and strength,
I'll keep all the colors of your irises in my mind,
And all the moods of the skies in my fingertips,
Finally, I'll accept it, dear Matthew,
You're in a place just for one of us,
But leave some room, and make it for two,
After this dream, I'll be with you.
A dream I had last night
Damn these plexus of words.
