A Dream (standard:poetry, 168 words)
Author: Hopeless RomeoAdded: Dec 08 2000Views/Reads: 2334/8Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
This is a combination of Romance and Fantasy. It's a young man's dream about one night with love in the grass, overlooking the bay.
 



A Dream 

I look out upon the velvet sky, 

As a breeze blows over me. 

I see the stars, and can hear the waves, 

I can even smell the sea. 

The grass is soft, a comfortable cool, 

Invisibly lush and green. 

With every breath I taste the air, 

Wonderfully brisk and clean. 

Your hand is soft inside of mine, 

You squeeze, I look to you. 

And in your smile you tell with ease 

What words could never do. 

A star reflecting off your eye 

seems to look just right, 

The moon, gleaming off your hair, 

Looks brilliant in the night. 

If a picture is worth a thousand words, 

This sight's value is beyond all books, 

A hundred poets in a hundred years 

Could not rightly describe this look. 

But suddenly I'm drawn away, 

As I am startled awake. 

And I lay dissapointed in bed, 

For the entire thing was fake. 

And as I begin to relive 

The dreamy ideal, 

I silently wonder 

If it could ever be real.
