Dreams of My Lover


Longing builds, frustration grows

The anticipation is agonizing

Temptation, hovering

Testing my will and patience


Opportunity within my grasp

Just say the word, I’m there

One night is all I’m asking

To fulfill your every want and desire


I close my eyes and take it all in

Your scent, your touch, your smile

Everything about you drives me wild

And I just can’t get enough


In my dreams I paint a picture

Of exactly how it’s going to be

I imagine everything, beginning to end

If only you knew what I think about


Searing skin wherever your fingertips caress

My breath catches with every touch

Lips linger in all the right places

Wondering and exploring every inch of me


Motions demanding yet gentle

Experienced and wise

You know just what my body wants

And how to take me to the highest stars


But the moment passes too quickly

Now the dream fades

Plummeting me right back

To an unwanted reality


Here I lie, in an empty bed

My dreams no longer bring solace

Only a fleeting glimpse of what is to come

Leaving me wanting so much more


My body aches, my mind spins

I’m counting down until I see you again

Torturing myself over and over

With longing dreams of my lover

Thank you scorpio. I have to say, it's one of my favorites. I went out of my element on this one =]
