He Comes in Dreams

Updated on June 6, 2011
Dream by Erathic/Flicker
Dream by Erathic/Flicker

In the corner of my room

In shadows, you await the moon


Poetry swirls in my mind, as the veil descends

One world fades and dies, as one is born


Silently beneath the sea of sheets, you slip

Weightless over my toes, ankles, calves


You trace a line of intent

Shallows and depths to be explored


Excited recognition in me stirs

Anticipation of your touch


Hands schooled by eons yet still curious

Delving, searching, finding


Fingertips awaken skin

Effervescent with the promise


Alert and conscious every nerve

Waiting, wanting, writhing


Warm and liquid beckons

Weight and heat answers


My aching hunger feasts

Gripping, arching, moaning


Rolling silver swells in rhythm

Break against the shore


Waves crash, flesh quivers

Pulsing, panting, spent


Left heavy and still, washed upon the sand

Back into the night you fade, my phantom paramour

I was inspired by Frieda Babbley's poem Soft and Delicious and then Cris A's Foreplay

      Wow, so intense and so carnal! There were so many great lines in this piece but my favorite has to be:

      "You trace a line of intent

      Shallows and depths to be explored"

      What a great phrase. This was awesome and I voted it that way. Wonderful job.

      That was impressive, I usually gauge poetry by how quickly it makes me see a picture in my mind of whatever it's trying to describe, this piece brought enough vivid imagery for a whole Audrey Hepburn marathon into my head...It had a great flow to it as well.

      Two weeks since I first met you and a revisit most adored. You've taken me quite by surprise, still, your Phantom Paramour. Truly a gift of a writer you are our dear Randy, and just so you know, you still play that sax like no other to stir this man's core...;)

      You make us all feel like twinkies I think =}

      Eloquent and powerful. A nice counterweight to the other piece you listed on your profile page. I was not sure what to expect and I was not disappointed! I love well written poetry where ideas, actions, love, pain, sadness, etc. all are painted with words not necessarily related to the topic. Going back over them, I only note moaning and paramour as directly related to your focus. That is magnificent writing. You reveal beauty and passion where too many today cheapen it with tawdry words and images. Thank you for sharing another extremely well written piece.

      Oh don't be put off David, please. Naughty is so much more fun than squeaky clean. Explain what you mean by an "inkling of what it is like for a sensitive woman." Not that I'm doubting you. Just didn't know I was one.

    • davidseeger profile image

      davidseeger 7 years ago from Bethany, OK

      I'm in awe. Such expressive mind pictures. The compliments that I want to share are to lackluster to be worth sharing. Only one thing. To call it naughty does it an injustice. It is too beautiful to be so referred. It gives me some inkling of what it is like for a sensitive woman. It should help a man be a more sensitive man.

      Hey Randy,

      Wow, first poem anyone's ever written about me. haha

      But seriously, I like your choice of participles. Anyone ever tell you that? "Hey baby, nice participles." Good ol' dirty verbs. You're my kinda poet.

      Hangin 10 8 years ago

      I loved the part:

      "Rolling silver swells in rhythm

      Break against the shore

      Waves crash,flesh quivers

      Pulsing,panting,spent"

      It reminds me of 2 huge waves of water of equal size crashing against echother and ending up to nothing so that it blends in with the rest of the sea,or how you can take a positive number and a negative number of the same number and make it 0.The ending result: priceless,effortless,so easily done like a second nature.Im not a big fan of numbers but what you said in your poem is like a mathematic equasion.Solving the probelm is really not that hard like some people think,all you ever needed to know was the formula in order to solve the probelm.

      Translation=

      once you master the formula of love,you can solve just about anything thats in that category.

      Very nicely done randy:)
