You amaze me
and I just sit here wide-eyed in awe
lips parted
as honey-dew aphrodisiac drifts from them
the lingering remains of your kiss
so passionate
it wrenched my soul from me
and it still watches detached
as my heart trembles
like an earthquake
spreading cracks of light through my tragic mask

My arms ache to hold you
to know you are safe and happy
that you are real
and not a fantasy
another figment rainbow pigment
cloud-writing through my fancy
and disappearing to a wave of blue
sea-foam kisses that are washed away

I want to fall asleep with you
rather then stay awake
dreaming of you
your face haunts my midnight wanderings
rather then blessing my starched pillowcase
with the scent of your skin

"I want to fall asleep with you..rather than to stay awake dreaming of you."  Fantastic writing.  I think that about Lena all the time.  James

WOW. . . this is absolutely amazing Stargazer. . .and it's even more amazing since I visited your web page. . .

The depth of emotion here is just incredible. . .

"You amaze me
and I just sit here wide-eyed in awe
lips parted
as honey-dew aphrodisiac drifts from them"

Excellent. . .
