Ravished by Poetic Fantasy

I fall asleep to lullaby of words
My soul released from care and earthy woe
I fly on wings of cherubs in the night
I taste enchantment in an overflow

The words you wrote caress in dreamy form
They lead me to the land of beauty sweet
Intoxicate me as full bodied wine
Then place before my lips delicious treat

I wine and dine on words to satisfy
The longing in my heart for ecstasy
Each word, each thought a lover in the night
I’m ravished by poetic fantasy

With morning light I wake to what is real
With fortitude and strength to love and feel

Eileen Manassian Ghali

    this poem i've just read leads me to an opinion, that the poet that wrote this, is not only super intelligent, but a warm loving realistic person....well that's what i think anyway....

    ....releasing, caressing, enchanting, satisfying, ravishing.....the very words you use to describe poetry best describe this particular poem. This is a well written poem Eileen. You've enchanted me..JM

    Caught up in the poetic rapture as stanza's wave...crashes into the walls of our hearts, knocking them down into yesterday's symphony. Yup, I can relate to this...excellently done!
