This Dream Again



This dream again, I blink in futile fervor,
to sleep and nightly wake myself with moan,
his whisper 'gainst my throat, exquisite murmur,  
a longing of such ache I've never known.

I cannot empty out my sensual treasure,
nor sift through hushing syllables of love,
as words of heart flood forth through passion's pleasure,
and memory lingers with my mourning dove.

But who am I to harbor such emotion
for one who sails across the northern skies,
when both have cursed the depth of our devotion
and fought to shield the pain within our eyes.

While days upon my passage lie before me
disguising grief and sentimental mist
a dove with gaze of peaceful eye implores me
ache not for lips I never once have kissed.



Dear LadyClaire

WOW...that was wonderful, beautiful and sad in the same breath.

to sleep and nightly wake myself with moan,
his whisper 'gainst my throat, exquisite murmur

nor sift through hushing syllables of love,
as words of heart flood forth through passion's pleasure,

a dove with gaze of peaceful eye implores me
ache not for lips I never once have kissed.

Good Grief Claire ... even your nightmares

Sad but beautiful with your description
You should get published

Claire~
Don't know how you make the anguish so lovely, but you do.

'But who am I to harbor such emotion
for one who sails across the northern skies'

'as words of heart flood forth through passion's pleasure,
and memory lingers with my mourning dove'

The dream is as exquiste as your writing of it.

I am afraid dear lady, with this poem you will create more than one dream tonight.
Exquisitely written.

Claire,
       are there really words that I can say to tell you what I feel about this work?

There are, but to use them would not even come close to the way this makes me feel. . . I could say "beautiful anguish", or "unrequited longing", or even "passionate yearning", but it's so much more than that Claire, it's the way that you make it seem so real. . . it's in everyone of your poems, and this is the finest example of that. . .

Don't mean to sound long-winded, but I felt that this required a lot more than just the regular "great work" from me. . .

This is delicately exquisite Claire, very much so. . .

You display such vivid emotions in your poetry...it is like seeing into a feeling that can't be expressed, only felt...but, you have expressed it anyway...Wonderful work, Claire!

Brian, thank you. I look for beauty wherever I can find it, and sometimes sadness is that place. So nice, your comment.

Ms. Poet, thank you...it is my pleasure to know that you enjoyed this.

Amy, your "beautiful"s felt beautiful to read...thank you...

Denise, thank you so much for reading and letting me know you enjoyed. You always say the nicest things.  

Dear Rex, thanks to you for kindness offered. My work has been published, but not upon the scale to which I would prefer. But then, I've not submitted manuscript in years...

Miss Marge, my friend, I am humbled by your sweet words today. Thank you!

Mike...and with that enchanting response you may have just created another.   Thank you, as always, for reading and such.

Sven...I feel it, and I write. It just happens in this way. It pleases me so much to know that you have enjoyed this...thank you!

Martie, it's funny, but I feel the same thing when I read your work! I thank you, in earnest, for your encouraging response.

to sleep and nightly wake myself with moan,
his whisper 'gainst my throat, exquisite murmur,

I cannot empty out my sensual treasure,
nor sift through hushing syllables of love,
as words of heart flood forth through passion's pleasure,

*SIGH* *SIGH*

exquisite...and perfect...
you ache divinely in this one my poetic princess...
and OH HOW I relate...
sometimes ya just wanna holler at the moon...
I just gotta get my hands on that POET!!!(not poetic I KNOW)
but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do LOL  

 Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-remain the most beautiful words ever heard.
