Illusions










When Ripp dreams, he is in a wonderful place.


Where everything has gone right the first time,


And he is right where he wants to be.





Where life, although not perfect,


Is as close as it can possibly get,


And he wouldn't want it any other way.







When Ripp dreams, he is not alone.


He is surrounded by warmth,





And it isn't just another one night stand.


Because he loves this man beside him,


More than anything else in the world.





With each breath, he feels safer - more secure.


He is loved.




When Ripp dreams, he is happy.


Because everything is right with the world.





Because his family is complete.


He is complete.




But then Ripp wakes up.





He is cold, and beside him lies an empty spot.


He is alone,





And realizes that maybe this was meant to be.




Notes: I actually had this drabble thought out a month ago, but I haven't been in the right mood to flesh everything out the way I wanted it to. Hope all liked it; it's a bit rough, but I'd love to hear comments and feedback anyway.

Thank you for reading!

Your writing is moving and the pictures are too, I was so surprised at the ending even with the title. Poor Ripp! :( I think we can all relate to him to some extent.
