I was unaware of my heart's palpitations,
The beats fell on deafened ears.
With a mind so engrossed with happiness,
I brought you to life.
Every detail lovingly pieced together.
A master craftsman at work on their trade.
Time passed as a sloth reaching for fruit;
Consumed by desire but unable to quicken.
A vision, a fantasy, a delightful delusion,
Finished, and it was all mine.
One step had been taken, getting closer.
The air in the room suddenly weighted,
Causing my lungs to stutter and stall.
With a quirk of perfect lips
The phantom became tangible.
In that moment control was lost.
Pure instinct from then, on.
A gentle caress sent the air rushing
Through me in a startled gasp
And caused my eyes to flutter open.
Gasp turned to defeated sigh,
As a familiar scene came into focus.
White ceiling, sunlight filtering through blinds.
It was all just a dream,
I had created you.
