' Last Night Poem by Linda Ori

' Last Night

Rating: 2.9

I dreamed of you again last night
As I lay upon my bed,
A passionate, exotic dream
Unraveled in my head;

No doubt 'twas something that I ate
Just prior to retiring
That set the stage for such a dream
With all synapses firing;

I don't recall the details now
Although the warmth remains,
It must have been delicious
As this fire in my veins;

I do recall on wakening
That sleep induced caress
That suddenly released me
As I tumbled from my nest,

And much as I attempted
To resume that precious dream,
'Twas fleeting and I lost it,
Pure frustration made me scream!

I dreamed of you again last night,
It must have been exquisite -
My dream life beats reality...........
That isn't fair now, is it?

Linda, our dreams often go that way it is sad to say. Mine were always reaching for the unattainable. Top marks for this lovely poem and thanks for sharing it with us my friend. Hugs David
