Night vision...

At the edge of the lake where shadows lay

luster of slate, restive, alone, he waits,

mood tempered by gloom; reflects the gray

the still water the depth at dusk creates.


She should be here by now, this much is clear.

Seeing desire, she couldn’t disguise

the longing light in her own eyes, the tear:

To balk his blunt demand—rueful surprise.


Since he shouldn’t, hadn’t she sought him out

when unsuitable, his (almost) to hold?

Think--hurdles of old--it can’t come about

but their fantasy seized so feelings unfold.


Suddenly there’s a shrill sound—an alarm—

She’s coming!—awaking; breaking the charm.

OH this is so well done!!!!!
'She should be here by now, this much is clear.
Seeing desire she couldn’t disguise,
the light of longing unveil her eyes, the tear:
To balk his blunt demand - Rueful surprise!

Only hours ago, hadn’t she sought him out?
Returned his fevered gaze, pleased to hold?
Sure of himself, insistence overcomes doubt
he perceived: Meet, eager; more reveal, be told.

In the dark, hollow sound, shrill rings the alarm:
She races to reach him – Awakens – Breaks charm!

Poor dreamer...

Reviewed by Jim Dunlap 1/30/2004
I'm not sure what happened, but I suspect skulduggery of some sort. It's an interesting write anyway.
