Keeping It...Your Bedroom...Real. And Dark. And Cool. | Sleep Satisfaction

we ... are immortal you and i have made it so our passions are spent flesh and essences, swimming moonlight drifting gently on a soft cloud of Giza percale exhaling the cool breath of midnight do you feel it ... the euphoric release from time's constraints? as if the love just made was the key to a portal, unfettered the loosing of cares and limits concern and condition, left ashore no longer our realm we are spin-drift and whimsy we exist in a dream our own making an ephemeral ethos a transcendental tide of torrid release and dopamine delirium we know it well, you and i and yet each time we meet here weary from our wilding we are as the shimmering dew of twilight - new ... tender ... deliquesced from the divine oh, it never lasts ... the encumbrances of being and actuality always wake with morn but for now ... for these precious, dreamy, expended moments ... we are as mists of the gloaming - gossamer tapestries of timelessness a single creation of emotion and merge, unending ... we are ... immortal.

Congratulations Greg on your first place win. Your verses flow one on the other like "exhaling the cool breath of midnight." So many beautiful and very original phrases. This shimmers like moonlight with gentle alliteration. A wonderful piece. Sending you prayers and blessings!

For me this is the very essence of top class poetry-- that which the golden poets of old would be proud! Even so, that some of them could not reach, imho. This definitely should be published! God bless...

Therein lies the depths of artistry which you always display my friend. Such classically displayed verses that truly awe the reader! Every verse solid gold. Such that tho' I strive to accomplish I seem to never reach in my own creations. Truly a gem to fav. And fav it I do.
