Sleepcatcher Way
(Virtual love 2)


Hearts at a distance, words in between,

Faith in each other, skin close in their

Dreams. A few precious moments, they

Share every day, just to know that he’s

There, just to know she’s OK. Far less

Than a park bench or a local cafe, but

Somehow much more in a less sort of



A room with a window, that stares at

Wall, in need of a friend to share poems

And talk, to listen and hear what the

Other confides, without need of a sermon

On how to live life. A mutual concession,

Like the moon and the tide; faith to share

Feelings one might otherwise hide.


I know it’s not much, but words have a

Way, of lifting the spirit and brightening

The day; an internet penfriend, a satellite

Stroll, by the banks of ‘come hold me,’

Near ‘you’re not alone.’ Arm in arm along

Wordsway, passed the ol’ Five and Rhyme,

Poet’s Corner looks busy, reading your

Work tonight.


The thrill of temptation, fond words in the

Night, pillow-rest whispers, a nine mile

High flight, not real, but the pictures that

Words conjure up, are more than enough

To turn humdrum to love. A fantasy lover,

Nocturnal delight, all poetic licence, but

Ever so nice, a perfect conclusion at close

Of the day, in the arms of a dream, down

Sleepcatcher Way.
