Dream

Written by: Vanessa Alvarez

His eyes in the light of the moon shined like no other
His tears dripped down his face more than I had ever seen
His breaths in place with the beat of his heart
His hands all in a fist with no one to his
His steps shaking
His head sweating like if he were nervous
His body came close with nothing to say
His voice seemed to have walked away
And to wake up in the middle of the night
Knowing it was just a dream
