"Lament"

I had this dream last night.

We were practicing a duet. Our
instruments gently complemented
each other, fading from the
foreground to the background,
the running lines you played
underscored by the chord issuing from the piano,
and then, without warning,

you

fell.

I ran over to you, and
kneeling at your side, I grabbed your shoulders
and cried "are you alright?"

Your eyes fluttered open, and
with a curious smile, you said, "I'm fine."

And I said, "Okay."



I wish I could remember that song.

Hidden twist: you actually died.

ARE YOU CEREAL? That sounds like an intense dream.
