by people and noise and faces and smells
and suddenly he appears,
drowning out the fast paced blur with his
Overstimulated once more
but now all her senses are him.
As he leads her away,
she is unfazed and stumbles along.
After all, this is just a dream,
Because it was real and it happened.
And it was not nice and pleasant as imagined
in girlish fantasies of true love.
And it was not sexy and passionate as described
in cheesy romance novels read at the beach.
But it was real and it happened.
Though she tried to protest
though she wishes it hadn’t
though she will try to forget.
