I dreamt we ran across the world
barefoot, belly full of joy
our feet like wings
bearing us on concrete clouds.

You showed me the vastness of space,
whispered in my ear

Then the same ground fell away
beneath our feet

and there was water, 
vast and dark
filled with one eyed creatures
leaping and wailing.

Still we ran,

our legs like cannons
shooting into the wet, deep earth
like violent stars

Till we reached its end.

We stood at the silent, trembling edge
every breath an explosion in the stillness

and I woke, shocked by air and space,
your whispered words still on my skin.

We're still running, love.
Happy Birthday.
