This Time Better

The number of times

it takes to quit dreaming about him might add up to until the end of the dreamer’s being. It can’t seem to be helped. He’s in the psyche, entrenched, solidified even though he is no longer living.

The number of times

he is always rather mean in the dream might have the same fate since that is how he was in the long run.
He liked to leave.
And was distant
and unavailable
when he wasn’t gone.
It didn’t start out that way. He was a fooler.
He was handsome though and really good at kissing.

The number of times

the dreamer wakes up wishing she didn’t dream of him is zero.
He was lovely
when he wasn’t being mean.
He was handsome and really good at kissing.

The number of times

anyone meant as much as he is fairly small and none were quite like that.
There is always hope that some kind of love may come again.
Maybe this time better.
It doesn’t even matter is he is handsome or really good at kissing.

The number of times

it seems better to have cats and dogs instead of a man
outnumbers any thought of having any kind of love again.
Dreaming can suffice
in the long run.
