When I was a kid I had this recurring dream where I was with my neighbor friends who were two boys about my age.
We were all floating in a boat, and suddenly, a second boat appeared
They both left my boat, got onto theirs and said
“Come with me!”
But I couldn’t. I thought maybe
If I get on this boat, they will try to kiss me
So I stayed in my boat and
Ever since, I have been lonely.
Then I transitioned and now
There are people pulling their
Metaphorical boats up all around me, offering me
Routes and even some fishing.
I wrote this dream down when I was a kid because I had it
About every day for two weeks.
It only took me until my 30th birthday to realize
What it means.
