Flash fiction – Awake in someone else’s dream

Isn’t that what the legend says?

If you can’t sleep at night, it’s because

you’re awake in someone else’s dream

           of course!

 

Is he thinking of me? you ask

Is he wide awake, too? you wonder

 

I stare at the ceiling,

grinning, then

           frowning.

If I don’t fall asleep soon,

I’ll look like crap in the morning.

 

Outside, the city lights are fading.

I count them,

            whispering..

he likes me, he likes me not,

      he likes me, he likes me not,

          he likes me, he likes me…hmm…

I look around and spy

four small red dots afar.

He likes me,

          oh my!
