Somnambulist WWP#148 & #sffiction

I’m somnambulant I said.

You said you didn’t judge, said it takes all types. You said I was your type. You said you just knew.

No, I insisted, this will never work out. It won’t last.

You said you’d convert for me, if that’s what it took. You’d become somnambulant too. You said our being together forever was your greatest dream.

I explained that I was dreaming you and all dreams end upon awakening.

Shh, you said. Sleep.
