Ruby Dreams

I had a dream last night

You were here,

You touched me,

Stroked and stoked the fire

Till it was blazing bright


I stood at alert

Each touch sending jolts

Of electricity to my heart –

Wildly beating


I took in the sight of you

Gleaming skin moist with sweat –

From the heat of the fire you lit

Your eyes reflected desire


I reached out and squeezed

Trailing my fingers down

And turning the fountain on

Felt the waters trickling


Moans were drowned in gasps of pleasure

I plunged

And startled awake

Heavy and aching


Now, I spend all of today

Living in a world that will never be

Piecing together the fragments

Of a heart broken anew

    ‘Ruby Dreams’ impeccably portrayed…an illusion! A sweet misery of sorts of what should be, ideally but is so much more a far cry from what is….reality and can tend to have a far-reaching adverse effect; when the dream ends and the illusion becomes shattered! Can tend to leave one feeling so much worse off as seen in that last line…’Piecing together the fragments of a heart broken anew’….the horror! Not therapeutic in any way, a sure way to slip into depressi😕😯

    Topaz is on a mission to keep me feeling nostalgic…
    Incredible lines.
    Heart touching.
    Heart rending.
    Heart shredding.
    Heart shattering…

        You can say that again Topaz.
        It’s like love is on a mission to keep me sad all the time.
        I wonder if I’m never meant to fall in love.

        1. topazo says:

          You will fall in love….all in good time Jules

          1. Adeleke Julianah says:

            I’ve always fallen in love Topaz.
            Just with the wrong kind of guy.
            But I’m sure the right person will come along…
