' Last Night

I dreamed of you again last night
As I lay upon my bed,
A passionate, exotic dream
Unraveled in my head;

No doubt 'twas something that I ate
Just prior to retiring
That set the stage for such a dream
With all synapses firing;

I don't recall the details now
Although the warmth remains,
It must have been delicious
As this fire in my veins;

I do recall on wakening
That sleep induced caress
That suddenly released me
As I tumbled from my nest,

And much as I attempted
To resume that precious dream,
'Twas fleeting and I lost it,
Pure frustration made me scream!

I dreamed of you again last night,
It must have been exquisite -
My dream life beats reality...........
That isn't fair now, is it?

Sweet dreams.........................!
Hi Linda. I loved this piece, with its 'spot on' rhyme and flow. There is such precision in the work that it flows so sweetly right the way through. Your descriptive powers are legendary. Now to the content...... I know exactly what you mean about dreams - v - reality, and not wanting them to be disturbed. I've not had the pleasure of an erotic dream encounter. However, 'winning the lottery' crops up time and time again, and I usually wake back into misery just before they hand over the cheque. I had to look you up, after your great comment on my forum piece. I hope you are keeping well. I still have a little wind Best Regards Steve 10++++++++++++++++++++
