When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

For just one night


I loved you for just one more night
You came in that dream after our journey
     –the long one    walking apart

Edginess in our exchange
Expectation      maybe fog

Night-wine    seven candles    two glasses
Utopian hours    dismissed distance
unrestrained ecstasy

Though it ends      again

  1. How sad that it ends again. Maybe more wine and conversations? Thanks for joining us for our 5th anniversary celebration.

  2. I’ve had dreams like this one. So real that makes you feel a long forgotten love as if new again.

  3. I think I may have lived this dream at least once. Strange how love can endure even past reality…maybe it is just the wine?

  4. So sad when dreams are what seems the most blissful thing… it’s better when we find it in reality

  5. Bitter-sweet.

  6. Dreaming of an old love and once again…it ends. Gives one such an odd feeling when one awakens and moves about the new day. I wish for you a love that isn’t a dream or that ends.

  7. Such poignant remembrances…short-lived love.

  8. unrestrained ecstasy – love it! All good things must come to an end, unfortunately – beautiful poem!

  9. The dream that ends again leaving us brokenhearted yet again…torture. Well said.
