Poems of a Mid-Summers Night

A Mid-Summer's Night

Dedicated to and inspired by Erica Sanchez, Fehl Dungo,
Cathy Nerujen and Cassy Mantis.

On a mid-summer's night
I met you in a dream.
Chasing fireflies and halos
in the cool summer breeze.

You were beautiful like an angel
so sweet and carefree
frolicking and playing around
by that grand old oak tree.

Such a vision of loveliness
Such a site of glee
Had nothing ever moved my soul before
you did it in a heart beat.

You sang me a lullaby
a soft sweet melody,
I could feel the warmth of your words
as you sang to me.

Then you started to fade
slowly as I fell asleep
closing my eyes,
I awakened from the dream.

You said all the right words,
to make me feel good,
told me I'm beautiful everyday,
but it was all a lie,
just a cover up for what you did
behind my back.
I guess I should be happy now,
he says all the wrong things
at all the wrong times,
he doesn't call me beautiful everyday,
but at least he's faithful.

The Monster of Us

(Inspired and dedicated to h.a.chauhdary)

When you look in the mirror
and see what you dont like staring back at you,
you turn away in disgust...

or maybe you turn away because you know that you do like it...
the madness...
the self destruct.

Perhaps that is the beauty of darkness...
it pulls you in
just as your body gives in to lust...

your mind gives in to the reflection...
pretty soon your face to face with the monster...
the monster of us.

Aw Nikki, this is so wonderful. There is something so familiar and deja vu-like about the oak tree poem, that I like. Or maybe I am such a tree lover...and I am lost in the forest again. LOL. Sweet poetry, Nikki. You are magical.

And thank you for honoring us with the mentions. Hugs. :)

Aaaw, I loved these poems, Nikki. How did I miss these treasures? Trees are a fave of mine, and like Cathy I loved this. I especially love the poem about being truthful when being in love.
