Was this a physical attack? (Song of Solomon 5:7)

7 The watchmen found me
    as they went about in the city;
they beat me, they bruised me,
    they took away my veil,
    those watchmen of the walls.

By my reading of the narrative, the events described in the passage cited in the question occurred in a dream, and thus were not an actual physical attack.
