Lost in a dream

Every colour of the rainbow drips like laughter from your eyes
And I can't believe their twinkle wasn't stolen from the skies
You have captured me forever in a soft seductive glance
I'm the snake and you're the charmer of my deep hypnotic trance
When I sit across the table I can hear the words you say
But my mind is in the whirlpools that have carried me away
In your gaze I read a romance that would surely win the prize
As the colours of the rainbow pour like starlight from your eyes

There's a softly swirling spectrum in the deepness of the black
In the pools where I would shelter from a vicious shark attack
Where I'd swim to find the reasons that you carried off my heart
Under rocks and shining corals that are missing from the chart
When you tell me that you love me there is nowhere I can hide
From the searching inquisition that is shining from inside
If I ever make a landfall then I know that I'll turn back
To the sounds that sing the spectrum from the deepness of the black

With kaleidoscopic splendour I see visions in your eyes
And the words I wish to give you fall away to simple sighs
You have taken my resistance and replaced it with a dream
Of a boat filled up with loving on a gently flowing stream
You can tell me of your conquests and your innermost desires
While I sit within your pupils in the warmth of dancing fires
From my oldest recollections I will summon up the cries
Of kaleidoscopes of laughter from the visions in your eyes

    The "kaleidoscope" in your eyes creates incredible pictures that leave me in a "deep hypnotic trance." You have such a gift for writing, Jeff! And your beautiful heart gives us feelings of hope, love and admiration. Truly amazing! Love, Carolyn

    I really loved the concept, the ocean a whirlpool, a universe in a lovers eyes. If I might I have 1 pet peeve the word "that" your verse & your skill with words can find a more meaningful word. Light & Love

    Absolutely enchanting write! It is magical, drawing the reader in as if they were a star witnessing each breath of your love. Sad, all too often I have found myself wanting to say the perfect words to my love and watched as the moment drifted by with silence on my lips. I regret that I lost my love a while ago and those words were never spoken, however my joy is in the fact that I was able to put them onto paper and send them for him to read before he died. Great writing! Smiles from Lolita
