Welcome to My Poetry Site
Love at first sight
Last night I dreamt a dream of dreams spun on
The wings of angels astride the clattering looms of
Love at first sight, where the weight of my love for
You became so great it would surely crush you were
It to be taken at full dose.
Angel hooks cast from heaven caught me by the
Heart and reeled me off to a place of vast beauty,
Where my heart became a feather and with this
Feather it wrote: I love you, I love you, I love you,
Thrice times and thrice more before the ink ran thin.
And having run thin the feather disappeared and the
Gates of heaven opened and I was met by the
Guardian of your heart, who in pastimes has dried
Your eyes and healed the many wounds of faltering love,
Was I worthy of your love pondered the angel or were you
To be hurt again?
Yes, I am worthy I replied, more than worthy. My love may
Well be new but it is true and one day new will age and
Become proof of what I say. Whereupon, a star of high
Magnitude in association with a spear cut me in two, which
Side speaks the truth now, cried the guardian of your heart.
Both sides interjected the king, he is true on both counts and
He deserves his prize, let them be and let them love in peace.
Day turned to night and I saw strange electric shadows of
Times to come, happy times, sad times, good times, bad
Times, and through all these times you and I survived and
As I left the dream the guardian of your heart wished me
Well, 'I didn't believe or trust you at first' she said, 'but now
I can see I was wrong, you are a fine man and you have
found yourself a fine woman.'
I awoke in a panic, but thankfully wrapped in your arms…
