The Dream

From the mouth of the ocean and the eye of the wave
You erupt in my being and leap from my grave;
A lover so gloomy, yet dreadfully bright
You're clothed with darkness but crowned with light.
You come in the spark, you soar with the fire
The mist is your pillow, the tornado your choir;
I will kiss you to sleep on the wild ocean crest
A sleeping volcano, an earthquake at rest.
When you feel the earth move under your feet
The sun will bathe you with her sultry heat;
Let not the stars dim the light in your eyes
Let not my passion find you unwise,
For all that you are is to be all that you can
For you are the dream, you are my man.

Are you familiar with the works of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton? They were the queens of confessional poetry. Remarkable phrasing, flow and rhyme, and arresting imagery.

Awesome imagery lines thoughts and descriptive emotion among other delights that fill this poem to the brim. Outstanding and actually shocking there is so much in so few lines. Hard hittling and fast delivery. Amazing Elizabeth
