On the bus ride to the train yesterday, I was listening to music and in an off-kilter state of tired&melancholy.
So, nothing new.
I like to look out the window* on the bus ride, it's a part of my heading home/switching gears routine.
For some reason, yesterday there was quite a bit of kissing going on in downtown Chicago. Quite a bit, indeed. I saw a couple of meh ones, a creepy one or two, and a few really lovely romantic ones. One delightful couple was beyond sigh-worthy. They were waiting for the light to change, and laughing about something. She wrapped her arm around his waist, he put his hand on her face and kissed her. It was movie like, and sigh worthy. Romantic silly headed me totally sighed.
The light changed, the bus went on, and as I got on the train, I pretty much forgot all about the kissing people of downtown.
I took some Tylenol PM before bed (ya know by now I've been having trouble sleeping lately) and let myself drift off. I rarely remember dreams that occur while in my deep Tylenol sleep. This morning, though, the memory of a dream kept nudging at the edge of my brain. I ignored it, it was just a dream and nothing worth remembering.
Sitting at work not 20 minutes ago, listening to my iPod, I heard a song that reminds me of the one that got away. All of the sudden BAM there it was - the dream from last night. The one that got away and I were somewhere (irrelevant) and there were other people there (who cares) and we were laughing. He pulled me in for a kiss and I smiled and we kissed the kiss of the ages.........dream fades out.
While it was a great and lovely dream, I have to admit - I HATE having dreams about him. They happen less frequently now than in the past, but when they do happen, it sticks with me for days and days.
I'm thinking I just need one of those head-spinning, heart-stopping kisses. And soon.
