Prose - Is it Real?

The magic in her eyes
Made my pain disappear
While the quiet of her voice
Made me want to draw her near

Is it her?
It is all so real
Is it me?
Is it time to believe?

As her words entered my mind
They told me everything I wanted to hear
Her impact on my life
Made my love for her so clear

Is this happening?
I want love so badly
I have lost my senses
Why must I wonder?

Her hair fell all around
I realized there was no fear
As her body softened
I knew she was sincere

I have passed
From dream
To reality
Or have I?

As she drew me towards her
I heard the morning shore in my ear
I closed my eyes to kiss her
And my dream did suddenly appear

Without regard
For truth
I refuse to open my eyes
For it may all end

As I awoke from my slumber
And mumbled the word “dear?”
A voice rose from the satin
Yes my love… I am here

I think this is one of your best poems yet.

I especially like the mumbled anonymous "dear". How different would be the situation if, in the transition from dream to awake, you had spoken someone else's name?

@mckbirdbks - thank you!

@Ahorseback - thanks man... it just popped into my head and I was thinking about dreams and magic... dreams give us hope I think and hopefully I will not only keep dreaming but some of them will also come true...

@Christopher - thanks man... it's weird because I thought up the opening lines while laying in bed and called my work number and left myself a message. Then the next morning I knocked it out... I like it when it happens like that. As for the use of the term "dear" firstly it worked in the poem as I needed the rhyme but it is much safer to say dear or baby instead of the wrong name!

@Duffsmom - thank you!

@Nellieanna - hey stranger! It is and has been my reality. I've had my share of love in life. I hear you about the taxes!

Ben!!! Glad to see you're still around man... I hope that opportunity you took is taking well to your life...

Yeah they disappear but sometimes they reappear. What you have to understand young man is that girls mature quicker than we do (which implies that men mature at all) so it's easy to lose one to an older guy or at least to those "sharp guys" who get their act together (aka law students) at an early age. But later they find out that MONEY ain't all that... it doesn't buy happiness but it does allow them to suffer in a nicer neighborhood I guess but that's not what I would call fulfillment... just hang in there and one day you will be the master of the universe....

@Ben - I thought you might like that... it's definitely something to aspire to.... I'm working on it but we can share the title because the universe is a big place you know...
