when angels dream

Updated on March 2, 2013

Woke up this morning
but you weren't there
just out of reach
behind the air
underneath my shadows hand

I see your name on love letters never written
your perfume
and the scents you kept hidden
eyes of rose breath
your smile of white and pink honey


in my dreams
I make you breakfast in bed
massage your feet, while you read the comics
then tickle you, before you can finish
You convinced me to take yoga with you
told you I don't bend that way
but I did it anyway
just to be near you


you hid my tears when I cried
taught me to swallow my pride
I laughed every time you tried
to use chopsticks
your napkin was my kiss


in my dream
your hand fits perfectly
in my dream
our dance never dies
in my dream
our souls swim and fly


you dreamt of flying to the moon
I met you there
our passion colored the starry
in flames of cosmic ivory
You are my wish
my shooting star
the lyrics behind my guitar


in my dreams
we are one
in my dreams
you are my song
in my dreams
you dream of me


the nightmares blade sliced reality

when temptation's twin whispered the devils secrets
wearing diamonds of lust and envy
dressed in paranoia silk and jealousy
speaking in tongues of lie and deceit
placed invisible knives in our hands
when we weren't looking
the snakes of Medusa
sought to put us to sleep
the hammer of Thor
hammered our world
Hercules shook our seven seas
played tug of war with our minds
but we won
in the end
we won every battle
we passed Cupids test


our love became the angel
that saved us from hell


in my dreams
I watch you sleep
in my dreams
you're mine to keep
in my dreams
you're here with me
in my dreams
behind the glass

you’re always

just out of reach

      Taking the dark side of love and passion and putting it into an image we can all see and feel so impressively done my friend continue writing...brilliance should never be locked away, continue sharing

      This one was like a dream I lived. Never quite real. But what can one expect of one who danced while lions and tiger watched on? Thank you.
