Chapter 73: Dream Poetry

Writers Group Exercise: 

Dreamy, steamy, Jakey

Appearing very suddenly
I saw you at the bar
Smiling back at me
Gorgeously from afar
We kiss
We caress
Every time we meet
Long forgotten puppy love
Deliciously sweet
Hand holding
Neck nuzzles
We warmly embrace
Paranoid thoughts
As you stroke my face
Did I pluck my bits?
Did I get that wax?
Did I put deodorant on?
Why can’t I just relax?
Here I am on a spaceship
Inside the honeymoon suite
Jake Gyllenhaal is with me
Tenderly kissing my feet
It’s then the penny drops
All too good to be true
I hate my feet being touched
The brain takes the body’s cue
Overheating in my bed
Jake tells me something’s wrong
Don’t want to leave, but I’m sweating
The electric blanket is on


It’s funny how the brain works. I used to have a little crush on JG and have dreamt of him before. The dreams are never erotic, just sweet and so lovely I wake up sad. Not because of him, but that beautiful sensation of that young puppy love bubble and the realisation it’s actually not real and your twenty years older with a husband, kids, dog, mortgage, grey hair and wrinkles.

The dream was like relationship beginnings and all the firsts – holding hands,  smooches, floaty PDA where no one else exists. In the actual dream I knew none of it made sense. I think I was questioning my current adoration for him – because I conjured up a tabloid magazine where paparazzi had snapped him in a bath with a bunch of naked men. Clearly I wasn’t getting the message, so my weird-ass mind made him gay to force the point of the dream. Which, is my silver lining and reflection of where I’m at right now with writing and hopefully – the next stage I’m going into.

If you have dreamed of kissing a celebrity, it means that you want to be successful one day. You are working hard because you want to achieve a big success. Alternatively, a dream about kissing a celebrity can mean that you are obsessed with that celebrity, so he/she even appears in your dreams

 …or maybe it’s just the latter. 😉

Of course it’s all true – the second search down on Google. Thou shalt not question such credible sources! Dream interpretation is so a ‘thing’!

*Wifey disclaimer: every time I have one of these dreams, my husband is either lovingly hovering nearby or the male lead morphs into him and all the romantic feels are the same.
