Till Now


Your name whispers across my dreams

Do you hear me across the distance

Are your dreams filled with me

As mine are with you

When I reach for you in the night

Do you feel my caress across your skin

From our final soft good-night

My eyes close and sleep overtakes me

I feel you wrap around me, pulling me in

My chest beats a tattoo, a rhythm of night

Sending primal messages, I chase eagerly

Through drenched sceneries we raised

With laughter and talk of other things

We build realms for us to explore

Shadows and silk trap me within reveries

Imagined by us for pleasure alone

I soar, unbound by any chain of propriety

Landing only when I hear your call to return

The weight of desire holds me to earth

Unremembered till you, unknown till now

Are you real, my heart tells me yes

  1. So special! The line that really stood out for me was: “My chest beats a tattoo, a rhythm of night” — wow.

    Happy Birthday

    September 19th is your day to shine!

  3. Val I love your poetry.. Its powerful and sensual,.. Its good to escape within our emotions.. x Hope all is well with you xxx Catching up with you at last. 🙂

  4. Wow! powerful, romantic and very steamy in that PG-13 way. Nicely done! My favorite line: “Landing only when I hear your call to return”

  5. “Are you real, my heart tells me yes.” I sure hope so, Val. You deserve nothing but the best!

  6. “Are you real, my heart tells me yes.” That’s a profound thought. It deals with our discovery about people in general. Only after knowing them thoroughly can we really feel comfortable with them or reject them as friends or lovers.

  7. Are you real, my heart tells me yes**
