“Zp, Signed with Love”

“Zp, Signed with Love” came from a dream I had, which I wrote down verbatim in the morning. What you read in my story, “ZP, signed with Love,” is an exact transcription of what unfolded in my dream, and the characters, though fictional, represent real people in my life. “ZP, Signed with Love” emerged as a subconscious reaction to my underlining anxieties of ghosts from the past. It is about insecurity, both irrational and rational, and how projecting a life and a future with someone can often be a cry for reassurance as being “the one and only.”
