I looked at him and I was lost for words,
those eyes so deep and dark, so penetrating;
he seemed able to look into my soul,
all my thoughts and all my dreams he knew.
I was unable to look away, then he spoke,
he had the most beautiful voice, like music;
so calming and soothing, to my soul,
other sounds faded away and the air was electrified.
a storm began and the wind howled loudly,
thunder boomed and rain fell in dreadful torrents;
my world began to spin out of control,
I was lost in a whirlwind of emotions and desires.
I wanted to be part of him, to be his forever,
his lips were soft, strong, gentle and demanding;
words so sweet that I closed my eyes,
he held me and the pleasure was beyond this world.
suddenly, I felt a change, a shift in the air,
the storm ended and calmness settled around me;
I knew it was over, he was not forever,
after all, just a sweet messenger in a lovely dream.
