I’m Ready to Wake Up Now

“It would be great to wake up in the perfect life…to wake, and be cherished and adored by everyone,” she whispered to him. “It would be as though I’d just had a bad dream, and when I woke, I’d be waking up to greet myself. It would be like a rebirth…only a rebirth into perfection and never ending happiness.”

He stared at her for a long time as she spoke, watching the corners of her lips twitch as she tried to force the smile on her face to stay in place. Then he noticed something slithering down her cheek, leaving a steam of glitter on her face. He met her glossed eyes. She was smiling at him.

“I’m ready to wake up now.”

I wrote this a couple months ago and thought I’d post it here on my blog. Hope you enjoy.

Speak to me with softness for your throat is tight. Look at me with kindness even though you hate me inside. Pretend for me that this tension between us does not exist. Smile with me, even if you are bitter. For I don’t know that you are offended. I don’t see that I’ve done something wrong.

So for yourself please move along and act with glee. Your happiness is most important to yourself as well as it is to me.
