Embracing Eternally

I dreamt that you were there, In a haze, I could see your familiar face The sun providing a spotlight for our awe-drenched moment As I drew near, Your features became more and more clear You were smiling from ear to ear, Like an angel fragrant and bright, My soul beamed like an on-switched light And we were so close to bonding edges So close to each other’s face I was captive in your touch And yet I felt fully free I saw your alighted lips Curved, smooth and pining As if they had waited for the moment I would find them And how they trembled with joy and longing As they took their inevitable, suspenseful plunge Two lips leaped and landed like panthers on the prowl, Magnetic, crazed and ruthless Made for this moment I cannot fathom the strength I received, Kissing those celestial lips… He was drinking in all of my sorrows In the sacred force of our impact I felt his struggles he bore, Ball and chain- Though I did not feel burden or pain I felt his purpose in his moist embrace The cuddle of dew and rosebud, The glow of this thumping heart I felt him release the reigns of life’s blisters For the conjoining of our truth In the kiss of wholesome bliss, He wrapped his arms around me, Tremulous and tight Caressing and knowing every spot needing light Eternal moments passing in our sweet blend, Tenderly, his voice, With comfort and assurance, Knighted by cream-lit clouds His voice, a deep bell scooping water from a wishing well Pertinently held my ear in trance: “This is the part where we never let go…” . . . When I woke from the dream, I realized we were embracing always, Since the day of our union My eyes became wise, And I knew that I never let go of him Not once, not ever... An unusual pair, yes, Like vines to a gargoyle Though eternal too For the gargoyle’s eyes never blink For fear of missing the most Her cold-stoned exterior senses the vine’s bold hold Feeling and bearing his thorns forever… Clad in the ornaments of each other Warmed and invigorated by the sun

Well written with a poetic pen aided by superb imagery. It tantalizes us with succulent imagery to seduce us with the nectar of poetic creativity. Emile. #7

I must also compliment you on your masterfully original metaphors which are very vivd, delicious, and philosophical. So much to see and understand Laura. The way you allowed your dream to teach you is also beautiful, your epiphany is so romantically honest. Its time to dream now...J.A.B.

A dream of pulse absorption, two panthers find their prize, soul love leaps between the eyes...companions blessed with amorous compassion...there is a real sense of romantic osmosis shared between these lovers Laura, their trust and acceptance for eachother is so visceral, and sumptuous. That 4th verse just peaks with rough affection, lust and care, "Two lips leaped and landed like panthers on the prowl..." thats hungry, determined love! What natural union, told so dreamy & true Laura...J.A.B.

Wow! Didn't realize I was holding my breath when I got to the middle, and as I read each line until the last, when I finally had to gasp for air! Stupefied! So I had to go back and read again...Glorious dream and gloriously expressed. You are so blessed! Continue to be a blessing my dear friend, as your pen ever flows with more creative writes...A 7 and to the favs! Hugs and smiles from the land of sunshine and thousand isles...:D Kim
