Raven {Dream Inspired Poetry}

I met you in the middle of the night.

I was feeling lively and radiant
as I ran up a hill larger than imaginable 
My mind was set on one thing: running
A million pieces of me were being collected with each step

I felt unstoppable that is until you stepped in front of me
My body stopped inches away from you
My mind was still running
But my body stood stiffly 

We were in the middle of a crosswalk
Our eyes connected and my mind awoke
Your eyes were a rich color of blue and
I felt like I knew who you were
and you knew who I was
I felt like we understood eachother

I wanted to keep moving but I couldn't
I got lost in the feelings I got by looking into your eyes
It was like we were communicating telepathically

Do I know you in real life?
I needed to know.
No, you don't, but my name's Raven
Raven.

I remember seeing sorrow in those blue eyes
It seemed like you were apologizing 
You looked devastated
But I didn't know why until it was too late

Slowly I was seeing your face fade
I was regaining consciousness
I tried so hard to stay
I wanted to stay.
but human nature dragged me away
 
I woke up feeling farther away from you than ever
I felt heavy knowing I could no longer talk to you
This goodbye was too sudden

Raven lives in my dreams and wanders in my subconscious
I have no idea if we will meet again but
if we meet in dreamland once more 
I'll tell him how much I miss him
