Summer Dreamin' - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

Bon fires - guitar playing beside
smoke stained sweatshirts
'someone grab more wood'
put on the bug-spray as you lift up your
sweatpants cuffs - tuck your hand under my
shirt collar - don't think about dawn -
we made it this far - nothing can stop us now -
another sip of wine warms us up as we cuddle
sharing thoughts - laughter - s'mores -
dancing with strangers - falling in lagoons - leap of the lips -
drunken kiss - stars spying - paparazzi taking blissful pictures
of summer - sphinx waiting at the end of the dream -
to see if you can get the riddle right to see
the supernova over the last threshold- -

    Freedom and seclusion in love and in summer sounds perfect as ideals always are. (Report) Reply

    Hmmm nice. Speaks of abandoning the shackles of fear and skipping hearts dancing as though they were flickering flames. (Report) Reply
