    I had a dream
    it semed so real but.....
    no you

    I awoke with sweat
    beading upon my head
    dripping, pantting, and still...
    no you

    I looked around
    to the empty pillow next to me
    jumping up
    startled by......
    no you

    Tumbling over
    trying to exit the bed
    tripping, falling, hitting
    the floor and then.....
    there stood you

    Chocolate dark
    milky light
    every bit of a man
    a creature built so right.....
    there stood you

    hand held out
    gripping and pulling me up
    holding me tight......
    before you

    before you.......
    there I stood
    face to face
    toe to toe
    and then........
    the dream no longer mattered
    for i have you

    Everything you write is so visual. I always feel like I am right there. You really have written some poetic masterpieces. :)
