In Dreams

I always used to wonder why the sensations one feels in dreams are so much more intense than anything one can experience in waking reality. Why the horror is so total and the ecstasy so complete. And what is the extra quality which can never be recaptured afterwards. The quality of what I felt when I walked down a path through tangled leaves in a dream, in an air full of expectation, of causeless, utter rapture. And when I awakened I could not explain it, it had just been a path through some woods.
I stopped wondering when I first experienced that extra quality in waking existence, when I first found, loved, and lost you.
My dreams will never be the same again.
