Sunsets At Midnight

Note: This is my second attempt at speed poetry (5 mins)

I dreamt again last night
This time, it seemed to me like you and i
were walking along older roads
Where the grass grew high and
the air smelled of warm roses
it was sunset and itself
shimmered then as would dusty gold

your slender frame upon coming night
off your soft skin bounced playful light
your hands in mine
fingers locking in snugly
my fists surely a good size larger
yet we've always matched nicely
stroking your hair, catching glints in your eyes
rogue strands tucked aside and found they revealed
dark, hazel seas of intense appeal
Now, I've seen you before - but it mattered not then
my arms finding path up the spine to your neck
I found that we were one
beneathe the moon and her light
Thus, give me sight that I might see
How hopelessly lost I am
in your eyes

In fields like these
I again find that I'm free
careless and young
with you I believe
till your fingers find mine
and in embrace do we meet
stay safe in my heart
or find place in my dreams
