Tantalizing love

Delude me, sweet fantasy: make him appear into my warm and scented sheets
Show me his love, as he caresses my long dark hair 
Form a midnight fire wavering from our eyes and fingertips  
Tonight I shall pluck a star for you from the heavens above -
Polished and twinkling on the edge of something fragile 
Make a wish touched by something pure and everlasting

Cloaked cased in the deep amber moment  
Remind me I am a like that of a small bird waiting to be cradled 
Hold me close with your strength and hunger unknown to you 
Oh tell me that I make you feel right -
As we waver dreamy under a canary moonlight 
The warmth of your breath by my shoulder, oh sight with delight 

Though we are but a mere speck in a cosmos of many 
 We are wrapped alone in a vacuum of glass kept fair 
Now nothing else matters, nothing really could-
When you are in the arms of something so powerful and so good
Delude me, sweet fantasy: make him appear into my warm and scented sheets

(A line taken from Andrew Crisci poem Thursday’s raindrops!)

    enjoyed gl in contest Shadow x smiles you may want to check some spelling for instance 1st stanza line 4 "pluck " works better than "plunk" hope you don't mind
