Forever Dreaming - Poem

Forever Dreaming

 

I’m summer dreaming in a December winter,

As music fills my mind and soul,

I find myself seduced by a siren’s voice that consumes me whole,

I’m only dreaming of her, lost in reverie,

 

A thousand mantic truths emanate from her mouth,

With just a kiss on those lips I would be forever free,

Free from this winter solstice,

Free from forever dreaming,

 

Dreaming of our souls spiraling out of our bodies and up into the sky,

Weaved into a beacon of light shining brightly across the universe,

A lodestar of a lovers traverse,

A blinding light of binding unity,

 

Just you and me together,

Drifting among the stars,

Interconnected as one,

A love found only among the synapses of my imagination,

 

For I am just a dreamer,

Content in his ways,

I believe in an untold love,

Even though I’ve grown wiser,

I sail forever on an ocean of weary dreams,

 

Floating on wings of wax, all will soon come to pass,

For I’m summer dreaming in a December winter.
