Treasure Island

Uriah Hamilton


A Dreamscape of Love


I still find comfort
In the soft caress
Of the moonlight’s
Tender glow
And hear your voice
Crystal clear
Drifting gently
Through a seductive breeze.

And I still feel
Your lips upon my neck,
How you would even kiss
The beads of my rosary
In a resplendent prayer
For our eternity
In a dreamscape of love.

Some days and events
Never end
But carry us through
This life
That often feels
Like a city besieged
By dog armies
Of the insensitive and cruel.

And I’ll never forget
When your body was a part of mine.

    This is entirely beautiful. I admire it very much. In painting there is a techniqe called chiaroscuro - you use it very well. (Report) Reply

    Uriah,
    This is absolutely beautiful. One of the more heartbreakingly sensual poems I've read in a while.

    I started reading your poems beginning with number 1 and will now take great pleasure in reading the rest - only 152 to go! ; -)

    Uriah, this is absolutely beautiful. I'd always thought all the love poems had been written, but I was wrong. Your poem is tender, loving, and the way it's written makes it look effortless, as though it's the easiest thing in the world. I don't know what else a poet could strive for.
    My warmest regards and respect,
