I hate this short summary nonsense.



You inhabit my dreams 

     claiming squatter’s rights

          on my nocturnal spirit


              Your warmth is my soulhead’s pillow

                    your laughter – satin sheets of sinless

                         joy on my memory


                              If my sleep is good

                                  you are there to make it so

                                       to give me rest and respite


                                         In the winter-length nights

                                              you are mine again and again

                                                    we are a single entity

                                                           stronger than when separate


                                                            Like weak strands of string

                                                      we entwine and embrace

                                                 to become a rope-strong

                                            line to our salvation


                                   We explore forgotten things

                              we thought we better knew

                         but obviously not well enough


                      It may never come to pass

                  in the world of wide awake

              that we share lives again


         But for as long as life

     permits me to have them

 you will inhabit my dreams

I love everything about your poem Roger, the tenderness and even the unusual form.
Reviewed by Georg Mateos 6/15/2010
Now, written as a poetic spearhead in paper and yet carrying a message for her that we were given a peek of, hope and reassurance wrapped with a veil of tenderness...

Roger, I could feel your endearing love in this poem..To say make your dreams a reality would be stepping over the boundaries, but I love to step lightly into no man's

You really need to go get her, this is such a lover's profession, I adore your poem...

I love the format a lot!

Much peace, love and light,
Amber "V"

The sweetness of dreams, leaving inhibitions behind to share and love at will til early morning light. Then to repeat it over and over with love growing just a bit more every time. There is such delicate magic in your pen...

Be always safe,

This is such a gorgeous tribute and poem ~ I'm insane about it!
Reviewed by Ed Matlack 6/14/2010
Considering you are the consummate insane person, I would think you didn't have any dreams and your reality IS your dreams...ed
