i found a dream




i found a dream
in a fountain pens leaning on the door
and life in a paper pasted
to a newly waxed wooden floor - i found


you in the window
next to a wishing well - wishing well on a stardom
as I exhaled my thoughts of such a living hell
without your touch - without a drop of your laughter
landing on the rim 


of this glass of burgandy that balances 
my act of caring between
One -  Holy Amen!
and all the diamonds
dancing on the night , and i dream too


within the spaces left
by the simple words - you scattered so neatly on the day
along with kisses to each my sighs
now given well away


as a wooden floor holds the paper, and
a window holds my hearts last flame - all within
a  fountain pen's dreaming of some lover
without an earthly
face or a binding written name

  4. I like these lines:

    a fountain pen's dreaming of some lover
    without an earthly
    face or a binding written name

    Nice one ~

  5. A rollercoaster ride of emotion. The poem takes you in and holds on tight. Touched.
