Love Is Red

I dreamed of you just last night

I dreamed a dream where love felt right

You came to me while I was dazed

Dazed and alone will soon be laced

I opened my eyes to see another day

A day I knew my love went away

Knowing that what I dreamed of

Was only a dream of what is love

I sat and watched as it passed me by

I let my soul windows rain with decry

Never to kiss the lips I desire

Placing my heart within this fire

It burns from deep down within

I want you like an addict wants its heroin

Clock will strike the twenty fourth hour

It will ring in the Holy Church Tower

White satin sheets spread so soft

As I’m rooted in my bedroom loft

I place my pillow down to lay

As my love painted red fades away

Desire has its moments, then they pass only to return again with even greater want. Such is this verse you have painted for us. WB
