Who Comes in The Night

She comes to me in my sleep
Pressess against the length of me
Exposes my weakness 
Covers me with waves of pleasure

I am unable to see her eyes
Perhaps it is I who looks away
Ashamed yet filled with desire
Wanting to quench the fire

She has many faces
Yet she has no name
Skin bronzed by the sun
Luxurious to the touch

I never know when she'll arrive
She is never the same
Perhaps that is her game
In this place there is no blame
Desire rises like a flame

I have no defence
I'm like putty in her hands
I respond to all her demands
My hands free to explore
I drink and still want more 

Then as fast as she appeared
She disappears
I know she was never here
Yet she was so near

I still smell her scent
Remember the way she bent
Wonder where she went
From which place she came
Is it a place of light or a place of shame
Am I a pawn or King in this game

It is better that I do not know
Like the wind she has to go
As I awake my heart starts to slow
All that remains
Is a familiar afterglow

    Richard...you have made other changes as well..."Am I a pawn or King in this game".....Nice line! Hurry up, though...I'm waiting for a new poem, and I might have to resort to reading some older ones...which isn't a bad thing. I wish some people would read my older work...It's all ME...Do take care...Goodnight!

    I don't think it is lack of interest. At times it is so hard to keep up with all the wonderful people and writing on this site. You can really get lost in this stream of conscienceless and creativity.

    You've summarized the metaphorical wineglass in the form of a dream girl. "Drink", "Scent", "afterglow"...this was intense. I think I'm going to go for a glass of Muscadyne myself. Excellent job!
