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!

WOW. I love how simple this piece is, yet how strong the emotions are. Like what agentscully above said, it's such a bittersweet feeling. Would it be better to not ever had it before and never knew what you're missing, or to experience it and yearn for it forever? :3 *sigh*

Y'know, idk how I'd feel. D: If I never had someone's love, sure I would wonder what it'd be like, but if I found someone else who loved and stayed then that would cause me to forget. But once you've had a taste for something - and then all of a sudden it's gone - you're left with a memory and the desire to want more.

There's really a fine line, and either is definitely possible. - u-
