Below is the poem of the week entitled Fleeting Dreams which was written by poet Charmaine Chircop.

Fleeting Dreams

Fondly He crawled into her night and pressed a kiss upon her cheek Through skylight glass He watched the stars counting her fervent fleeting dreams. Her dreams He owned and love bestowed in pleasant walks of ocean bliss He knew that girl that lay in bed yearned only for his seeking lips All thoughts of her in want of him without a limit, reason , or gain Had filled his stomach with fireflies A moon-glow burning in molten flames Those intense flames He had to bury Never to feel her long embrace At early dawn He has been gone with one last glance upon her face Fondly She crawled into his night and pressed a kiss upon his cheek Through skylight glass She watched the stars then once-again entered his sleep.
Inspired by the oldie song by Lobo -Baby I'd love you to want me...

    Nice write Charmaine, you do these very well, only critique would be the word " churning" in the third stanza , I feel it can be omitted without impacting on the write itself, ....Ian
