(Contains: sexual themes)
Your hands reach out
from the darkness
of my dreams,
with frightful delicacy
your fingers circle around my throat,
only a feather touch
exhilarating for the faintest
suggestions of danger,
trailing down along my naked flesh.

I am left transfixed,
caught between worlds,
your phantom presence
claims my soul, and you have me
within the balance, all I want to do
is fall away into your darkness,
the stir of your breath,
a night wind at the end of a sultry day
chills me to the bone,
but your lips, a ghost kiss,
a crucible of fire
churns within my core.

I feel at once suffocated
and boundless,
and your name scorches its way
up through my throat,
like a spell, an ancient incantation,
your wispy, vaporous touch is a torment
as Morpheus I wish you could pull
me right into your dreamworld.

I would sacrifice my first blood
in the ancient rites
if it would manifest you in the flesh
you are both my dark god
and my demon of the light,
but it is the man of blood, and bone, and skin
I long to dissolve into.

To feel your solid, hard, yet
yielding flesh against mine,
let me be your High Priestess,
the oracle of your fate,
the weaver who spins the web of your life,
I can hold you here in this world
bind your body to mine,
and I will drink the drops
of your pomegranate wine
so forever more my soul
will become your own.

Dream Lover by ~SilverWynd It truly speaks to that mysterious dream that we all have sooner or later. ( Suggested by MotleyDreams and Featured by inknalcohol )

Great! An other one I congratulate you for, I definitely like your vision!

But it could give me thrills if I focus on it! 

Still this ghosty thing about the loved one... That's what I like in your writing.

My, my. What an interesting way of looking at it. But entirely logical, even if not intended. After all, I suppose that carnal intimacy is the natural progression of relationships - the hallmark of humanity, new life being the divination to inspire them. So why not view it sacerdotally?

 

That I philosophise all things, even lust, is probably why I'm still alone. Oh weh.

 

 

Anyway. I do love this piece. It is remarkably poignant. Thank you kindly for posting.

Thank you for your thoughtful remarks. I find it is also interesting and sometimes insightful to see what others think of my work. I think that the sexual act can certainly be a very spiritual and sacred experience.

I find personal opinion to be very useful as a gauge also, it is why I value discussion and commenting over "favs" and such. Not that they aren't appreciated, of course! But as a Hedge Philosopher, I can't help but enjoy the thrill of discourse whenever it strikes.

Oh my!  That was like a miniature, microscopic romance novel all done in five verses.  I got that this references Persephone perhaps?  But the intense passion (lust) of wanting your dark lover to be made flesh --- oh my again!  *fans face*  Loved it.
