The Dream

Last 
night I dreamed 
I found you
and you had not changed
you were there 
broken
on the floor 
wrestling with the
same chemical demons
and they were winning 
still
but I had changed
and I took your face 
between my hands and when I
looked into your eyes 
all the past was 
gone
and I felt no anger
no betrayal
no judgement
and the scars, they had faded too
I felt nothing but
love
and sadness
and I heard a voice say 
Talitha Cumi
but I woke
before I could see
if you would 
rise
