remember me as a dream






leave me to fade into yesterdays
of moonlight and limbs entwined
fleeting temptation we couldn’t deny
to pleasure we yielded and dined
savouring the lick of heat in our veins
our senses and touch ablaze
breathing in feverish scents awash
we tumbled in lusty forays

yet written in stardust our names were not
a moment’ry madness’ delight
the draw of the silvery moonlit skies
that offered a carnal respite
and in my mind’s eye i lie in your arms
that wasn’t our dream to dream
i bid you farewell on this dying night breeze
remember me as a dream

  9. I'm sure there are going to be times when a moment or two passes

    But those moments that come and go (one maybe two)

    That one that might happen but will never be more than two

    For there will only be one moment in time

    all other moments my thoughts are of you lovely shadow

    so you see it's that one moment not that I be able to forget

    everything else will forever remain

    I cannot forget all those moments I remember them all

    each moment you made special your essence made special

    thank you for being you lovely shadow i thank you

    thank you

    they say as in them

    I hear them screaming but I only

    repeat it softly

    slowly

    monotone

  35. Blimey Shadow fourty two comments you are getting a big following now soon I will be seeing your poems in major bookstores.
    Really had probs in 2009 my 5th year just staying in the moment problem with me my mind is always straying off into weird worlds of magic pixies.
    Beuatiful poems, I have been reading them imprisoned here at my despatch desk watching the snow flurries out of the window, brick sales are quiet this time of year.
    Happy new year and its good to be back in blogworld again after being away with the fairys for so long...
