My Dream

I smile automatically, it’s the effect you have on me every time, but I only remembered to breathe again after hearing you sigh in your sleep. The press of your soft, naked body against mine does not bring me down to earth. Lying...

How It's Supposed To Be?

Is this how it's supposed to be? I never knew Nor felt as close to anyone, never had presumed. Every waking moment filled with thoughts of you, All my dreaming has me enthralled, all subsumed. There is a shimmering love light running through These feelings that have me so consumed. These two hearts keep beating at a single pace, Our lips still, and forever, needing the same kiss, ...

Thank you for the nice comment you made on my poem Uncool, Uncouth, Uncaring. I'm so glad you found it the opposite of all those negative "un" words!
