Dream At Night (poem)

Updated on July 7, 2015

To walk and talk and dream at night

Was all he ever had in sight

A simple life was his delight

This man of modest appetite

-

But trouble comes in many forms

A passing breeze which masks the storms

A passing glance as passion swarms

For some alarm but him it warms

-

And so with her he passed the night

Where kisses came like passing storms

Imagination loosed in swarms

Enough to feed their appetite

-

And so for her his love thus forms

And to all else he loses sight

She didn’t share in his delight

A sense of danger quickly warms

-

Shear madness has an appetite

Our darkness oft is its delight

It bore his vision into sight

To walk and talk a dream at night

      Oh, good one here, Mh! Hmm, well, maybe she met a silver-tongued devil ... hence a devil woman was born LOL

      I like the "To walk and talk a dream at night".

      God bless and stay away from those devil women
