damp, salty pillows

He had come in her dreams.
And when she woke up, the dampness of her pillow paled in front of her smile.

Can one really sleep a damo salty pillow?

How much of crying would that require?

And then how much of a dream to segue into a smile?

LEARNING TO FLY said...

Unrestricted, her tears fell like a downpour of rain;
Her chest heaved with every breath,
Her throat was choked, and her eyes were red;
She hiccuped her way to silence and then heaved a sigh of relief.
Embarrassed, she looked at my wet shoulder and gave me a teary-eyed smile.
A rainbow emerged through the gloom.

You inspired me!!!
Great writing.
Thanks for the compliment!
