Alicia Lewis: San Francisco

Fall '13 TOC


I once had a dream that I would fall in love with you, but instead I fell in love with the idea of you. I once had a dream that the idea of you could be you, but you were only the idea behind the idea. I once had a dream that the idea behind the idea was as good as the idea of love itself, but now that this love affair is over and I am not with you, I am beginning to understand love. You are not in love with her. I was not in love with you. We were in love with the concept that love is two. Dreaming that one against the other will make us both happy. I dared to dream away a fantasy. Now that you are with her, I watch the continental divide. The way she pretends. As I thought to pretend. As you will dream that girls and fantasies are not pretend.
