"I remember a time when I felt like I really loved someone. That raw, magnanimous, undeniable, uninterrupted love. And I was loved too. Hard. When he cried, I cried; when I cried, he cried. And when we laughed–it was this one big roar. It was pure mirth, and it would last and last, neither one of us dare end it, because then that moment would too. So we'd fall asleep in each other's arms–chuckling and giggling until we were just smiles, that slowly faded in our slumber. "

"... what happened?"

[pause.]

"My alarm went off. And I woke up."
