The Kiss
Author: Capricorn


Arms linked he strolled me home
through dim-lit avenues.
It wasn't safe to be out alone.

Cosy on the sofa
we chatted, chuckling
at his banter, until
the clock's chime suggested
we say goodnight.

He understood I was taken
yet bold lips brushed mine;
a lingering feather-touch,
tantalizingly tender ...

leaving me gasping
as we swayed in the doorway,
wide eyes scrawling messages;

I jolt awake, my heart
drumming percussion
to warblers early serenade.

A tickle of warm breath on neck;
I face my husband
-- the man I love.
Smothered by sinfulness
I crave for more.

Turning back to doze,
I dare to
smooch again.

Well - no harm in dreaming!

Yes - it's nice to dream when you'r having a good one but dreams can be scarey sometimes! Glad yours was just a dream! Hope you have good dreams. I often wonder what they mean - do they have some deeper meaning? When you have a good dream its best to just enjoy.
