Dreamlove

they met, once upon a time-
her silky hand melds with his
for but a moment 
an exchanged glance, fleeting
chocolate brown orbs
swimming in pools of milk
ebony hair dancing across her 
backless gown as she walks away
walked away…

swirling visions fill his head
dreams of her upon his bed
spinning, thrashing to and fro
stars put on an astral show
future bride on horse so white
sparkling jewels illume the night
speaks his name so sweet and low
eyes that cast a hopeful glow
calling, begging for his love
angels dance a waltz above
off they ride into the sun
forevermore they’ll live as one

‘twas the night they met
her heart stolen-
tapered black tie suit, cufflinks of gold
matching his golden locks
momentarily awestruck, diving into
piercing deep blue eyes
was all it took to set her blood afire
his seductive smile teasing
it’s way into her heart…

late at night when the world is asleep
she’s up thinking about him,
secretly hoping he’s dreaming of her too
when she finally closes her eyes
she drifts off, and in a moment of time
she’s with him, ready to love him
bands of gold glimmer like starlight
her silky gown drops gently to the floor
Andromeda turns her gaze
lost in love’s embrace
they burn like the midnight sun-
forevermore to live as one


she glances his way
her heart smiling, believing-
meeting him was destiny
she walks past his desk
drinking in another fill of him

if only she could tell him…

if only he could tell her...

he catches a glimpse 
from his lonely cubicle
the nape of her neck beckons 
a tender kiss, well-placed-
before long he's lost in a daydream


An honor to collaborate with July Morning

Congratulations on you guys producing such a sensual romantic dream . And so often does it go, the wishing in silence.. If only the courage to speak up were more common, but the magnitude love can bring fear of rejection and thus only a dream remains. A fav my friends...

I don't know how many times I've read it but its so WOW! A melding of two pens, producing highly emotive, romantic poetry! Hoping they will again one day meet, and once again compose a poetic treat. My thanks to you both for the pleasure it gave me, plus the realisation that every morning I wake my dream is laid beside me, a kiss and she's my princess for another day. Best forever wishes to you both and your kin, Mick

What a shame. If not for a lack of courage their dreams could be realized. My wife appreciates that I was willing to through caution to the wind. I moved 4000 miles across the country to be with her. 25 years later it has been the best decision of my life.
