A Lover's Verse

Rating: 5.0

Drifting her fragrance through the vine,
Promising dreams of a never-could-be
From the loss and the lapse of a former time.

She finds me adrift in a restless sleep
Alone at the reins of a phantom hearse,
She plants a kiss upon either cheek
'A gift, ' she says, 'from the universe.'
I try to wake, but she hushes me

Such a sensual piece David. To be given in sleep what we do not have while wake is most cruel; yet something to look forward to the next time we rest :) Beautiful David.

Hello David. I came in looking for a young friend and found you. Serendipity. Continue writing such melodious poems. i like sweet and gentle men. Stop drinking but immerse yourself in poetry - it has far greater effects. Yep - a rose is blooming. Thank you
