Wet Dreams

on

I dreamt of you
At dawn
The rising sun brought
Images of you
My world was chaos until you
Came out of the blues
A guardian angel —
My angel
In white dress, decked
With diamonds
Shining, a vision
In hair cropped short
Your eyes twinkling as you
Smiled, looking into my soul
A star shining in broad day light
Side by side the sun
We fell in step, walking side by side
Your hands over mine around your neck
A familiar gesture — old friends comfortable in each other’s company
Your hands moved down, dragging mine with you
Over the soft rise of your chest
I felt your peak, rising up to greet me — a familiar greeting
My heart ached
I missed you
Missed us
You looked forward, oblivious to my pain
Or maybe you were hiding yours too
We fit, we knew
Nothing was amiss
This was how it was meant to be
But not how it is
I woke up abruptly
Reality intruding
Rudely into my bliss
Even in dreams, it is
Determined to tear us
Apart
I rose up bitter
And lashed out on life
Life, in human form
My eyes wide, lips
Spewing fire
And ashes from erupting
Volcanoes of pain and longing
For more time
Just a moment longer
Of dreams of the past
And memories that linger
Into the future.

    Hmmm. I thought we were done with them that cause us pain?
    I bet they can not but hunt our dreams.
    Nice one Doc.
    Beautiful nightmare.

      Beautiful Nightmare! Such irony!
      Oh Amity, life and it’s crests and troughs….*sigh*
      We shall always be happy nonetheless…

    These lines are such an allure, notwithstanding that they’re also pretty disconcerting…..another case of ‘Bittersweet’ and or ‘Sweet Misery’! Typical! 😩

    ‘Love’s an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired’- Robert Frost. This quality I can pretty much say is very present in the estranged lovebirds in ‘Wet Dreams’! Feelings are flowing both ways and are mutual! Nice!
    Marianne Williamson affirms that ‘If a train doesn’t stop at your station, then its not your train’! But, this train (the guardian angel), did infact stop at the Narrator’s station! So then, at what point did this train get a move on to becoming ellusive, to the point of being totally relegated to the world of dreams? Plus, who gets touched by an angel and then allows for such a person to walk and bail out on ’em?! 😔

    Spellbinding and absolutely sensual is what this composition is Doc….magical! I love it! 😊😄

      Some angels are like butterflies Yemie, landing for a short time, spreading colors, and then flitting away…
      Thanks for your in-depth analysis and thoughtful comments…i am always in love with it! (or with you, perhaps…*winks*)

    2. Now I think… aloud
      I think out my thoughts in a cloud
      distanced, far and so near to your comment

      And dare I say your comment cements
      what this is all about?

      If the train doesn’t stop… then it is not…
      therein lies that paradox of stopping and moving forward

      for until the train FINALLY STOPS… every other station
      is a station in the potency of further motion!!

      Now I think… aloud
      I think out my thoughts back into the cloud
      they must be as clear as mud
      even to me!!

      1. Yemie says:

        Dare I say Angelbert, but your poetic thoughts, them which thou doth thinketh aloud; in and out the clouds, does make CAPITAL sense Sir and are therefore crystal clear as day; as opposed to….mud?! 😁 😄

        On a more serious note though, I do totally agree with you ’bout the whole movement bit that characterizes our lives and existence on this planetary plain! We always, ALWAYS get a move on at different points in time…..restless souls that we are!

        Mortals for the most part are insatiable…..plagued by wanderlust, and like the seasons…we change! The ocean they say is unstable, but so are we; even more! Whoever reaches and recognizes that ‘elusive’ final destination and am not talking ’bout ‘the’ six foot under; but infact they who find their soulmates and feelings does flow both ways….then they; shalt be called blessed! Provided they both choose to put in some amount of work and make the best of the precious gift of having found each other! 😀

        Thank you so much for shedding more light on mine ‘train of thoughts’ Angelbert! Its nice to have you on here and I hope its not a one-off visit and you’d get to stick around too as opposed to ‘moving on’?! 😈😆 Shalom! 😇😃
