I Reach For

I reach for words
Delicately floating in the air
Like dandelion wishes

I reach for you
So above me
Your lips could whisper to the stars

I reach for your heart
Intangible, like a foggy dream
Lingering vaguely through a midday nap

For one gentle instant
I close my eyes
I grasp the language and I feel you

I treasure that moment
Only briefly true
it lives during sleep

  5. Very nice poem! I'm always very impressed by poets because A. I think my poems sound so 'Dick and Jane' and B. somehow, some way, the word 'peen' or 'vaj' always makes it into the poem. I think its a sickness. ;p
