Waking Dream

Washing away
the scent
of your
warmth
under
falling water,
wishing your
body
close to
mine.

Remembering
the
struggle
as we
fought
through the
illusions
to reach
our
reality.

Clear water
as soft
as your
caress
on my
tired
framework
healing the
ache of
another
absence.

The illusion
that offered
body and soul
to my hunger
lighting the
way.

Drying
the
pain
and smiling,
seeing
your
mirrored
reflection in
the
mist
of a
recent past.

Yes indeed a moment in time for certain, I believe we have all washed away that scent, yet longed to have it back again as quickly as it left. Loved it.

Thanks once again saddlerider :) By the way your poem "Everybody Knows" was a really great read. Keep them coming.

Real fan of Leonard Cohen and likely to become yours as well.
