A day Dream


In my minds eye you match the goddess Aphrodite,
And I envy a man who
sits facing you-any man whatever-
listening from close by to the sweetness of your
voice as you talk, Thinking of-
The-

The sweetness of your laughter: yes, that-I swear it-
sets the heart to shaking inside my breast, since
once I look at you for a moment, I can't
speak any longer,

but my tongue breaks down, and then all at once a
subtle fire races inside my skin, my
eyes can't see a thing and a whirring whistle
thrums at my hearing,

cold sweat covers me and a trembling takes
a hold of me all over: I'm greener than the
grass is and appear to myself to be little
short of dying.
And to think I’m only a few hours away from all these sensations
Just one touch and then if I survive the internal fire of desire
A gentle loving Kiss

ouch...this is some deep passion here...does the girl know? If she doesn't I think it's time to tell her.

A day dream, methinks, born of some experience? But lovely nonetheless. Interesting too, they way you've set out the poem, with a distinctive punctuation style - that serves I to believe, to create a slightly stilted delivery from the narrator who is so overcome with emotion that he must 'feel' for his words. A romantic read. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
