In a dream I kissed you, a poem

A little while ago

In a dream I kissed you.

In a quite vivid way.

I woke up in a trance.

Since then I've been doomed

And lost my will to sleep.


When I think about you,

Laying down in the dark

Awake and so aware,

My imagination

Paints the contour of your

Desirable figure.


I have known you for years.

And always admired you,

Always coveted you.

But for his own a man

At the time had claimed you.

In your shadow I stood!


But now all bets are off,

As this man has left you

Heartbroken, and I was

Left to help and pick-up

The pieces of the heart

That I have so lusted.



I think of this next time

When I'll see you again.

We'll dance the night away,

Or lunch near the ocean.

Either way in my arms

Where forever you'll stay.


Empowered with desire

While gazing at the stars,

I live the dream again,

The one when I kissed you.

I know for sure I did!

But was it in a dream?

      What is reality? What is fantasy? Do they sometime intertwine to the point where we no longer really know which is which? Thank you ExoticHippieQueen (fabulous name, by the way!) for expressing such a warm comment.

      This was so very romantic. Readers always wonder whether a poem is bad in reality or fantasy. I don't have to know. Either way, you spelled it out very vividly.
