When I'm sleeping

I can hear you when I'm sleeping. You say, "Blah, blah, blah, blah, oh look at Nima, blah, blah, blah." And I hear it and I wake up. Because maybe for a second you were going to give me food. But then you didn't. Instead you just keep looking at me, and then when I look back, you look away... Or not, because sometimes you keep looking and I keep looking back wondering why you're looking at me if you're not going to give me food right now. But the point is, I can hear you.

And I hear you when I'm upstairs in the best bed in my house that I can be in and I'm snoring asleep. And you're watching your flat noisy box and it is really loud. And for some reason you say, "Blah, blah, sign up Nima, blah, blah, blah." And I wake up, because I heard you. And I heard you say my name, and maybe you were going to pick up a tennis ball and play with me. But you didn't, so I went back to snoring asleep.

And when I'm laying on the floor and you see my eyes are closed asleep, and you stop whatever-it-is that you're doing for just a second to look at me, I hear you not doing whatever-it-is and I open my eyes and look back. Because I can hear you not making any sounds and not saying my name.

And I hear you when you're coming home and walking up the stairs. And I was at Doggie Goddess all day again having the BEST TIME EVER!!! And so now I'm THE SLEEPIEST I HAVE EVER, EVER BEEN, but I still hear your step-thumps because they sound different than everyone else's step-thumps. And I wake up, because you're going to come into my house and then I'm going to get to lick you hello and then go up to the upstairs and fall back asleep until you feed me and all of that is the best (BEST!!) ever!!!

And when I'm sleeping I am talking to you. And I'm telling you to please feed me, and to play tennis ball with me, and that I don't care whatever-it-is you were doing, I'm just so happy you came home and stopped being lost in the outside today. And I know you can hear me.
