Edge of a Dream

It was all so fleeting
a momentary flicker
inside a tired mind

the softness of my pillow
was soon forgotten then
as I followed your music into
the Will O’ the Wisp mist.

Hope hides in the cloak
of darkness
but you,
you bring a lovers kiss
to lips that too, have
tasted salt.

My soul swirls
in the movement
of your hypnotic dance.

I want you to stay
but you remain an
elusive wind-kissed-mist
there, on the edge of a dream.

  3. i dream a lot. thinking of love being on the edge of dream is mysterious, and believable.

    very good.

  4. hope may hide in the darkness but with a kiss and thta dance it seems to be alive and well, even if only on the edge of dreams…smiles

  5. The edge of a dream one just can’t reach is quite the pain, as then you wake up and can’t go back down that lane.
