Touched by a Magic Wand!

Beautiful Sunset
Beautiful Sunset

Often, when I dream at night,

The latent fantasies soar to a new height;

My spirit leaves my body and travels light,

I slip into perfect peace and everything feels so right.

cascading hair
cascading hair

Standing in a meadow and watching the Sun down,

In my dream my cascading hair shone golden brown;

With fiery orange rays filtering through each strand,

I felt like being touched by a Magic Wand.


I heard a voice melting in my ears,

Seeping deep into me and draining away all my fears;

Those magical words … ‘till death do us part’

Instantly lit up the dark alleys of my saddened heart.

White Dove
White Dove



My life had been worse than a shipwreck,

But the way he wrapped me in a blanket of love,

Gently running his fingers through my hair and kissing my neck,

I felt free from shackles and fluttered my wings like a love smitten dove.

True Love
True Love


I stood still as if under a spell,

For a few moments or aeons, I couldn’t tell;

With blood gushing through my veins;

It seemed hard to pull the reins.



I felt his heart beating against my chest,

Filling my whole body with a new zest;

With my mind completely at rest,

It sure felt like the end of my quest.

precipice
precipice


Then came the moment I always dreaded,

“It’s time to go.” He gently whispered;

With tears blurring my vision,

I saw him moving towards the horizon.


I ran after him in a state of numbness,

Tripping over a stone, I fell off the precipice;

The next moment I woke up on my bedroom floor,

With a hurt elbow and memories, that I would always adore.

I love hearing people's dreams. I wonder what you actually did to wind up on the floor. Ah, the wonders of sleep. Fantastic. I wonder if you'll dream it again, if not the same then in a different form. That happens to me sometimes.

Very romantic, the inspiration of this type of adoration is like a drug for men. The few times in my life that I was the protagonist it was heady indeed. But one can not savor such power. It only brings pain to both. The pain of loosing a treasured partner, and the pain of shame for causing such woe.

anjalichugh 7 years ago from New York Author

trooper22: I know what you're saying. The other day I left a comment in someone else's hub which I would like to share with you...."Love..hard to live with and even harder to live without."

I guess that's pretty much in line with what you think. It surely is agonizing to lose a treasured partner. Sigh! Despite this we still keep looking for love even when we lose it. That makes us human. Thx very much for stopping by.

yudaant: Thx very much for being so much appreciative of my work. Speaking of your poem....it was awesome. Mine simply got overshadowed. Why don't you write here on Hub Pages? It's better to show your incredible talent to a wider audience. Good luck.

Brilliantly romantic poem, really enjoyed reading it and I loved your choice of pictures too.

Acetnna: Thanks so much for your kind words. Its perhaps (some sort of) a sudden rush of emotions through our veins which makes us write such stuff. You can very well understand this, considering that you've written very beautiful and wonderful hubs based on 'love'. :)
