The breeze carries the whisper

of my name

an unknown voice of longing

calling me from slumbers

beckoning me

into unfamiliar dreamscapes


I cannot help

but answer

this forlorn appeal

that echos

soul to soul

heart to heart


I become a wanderer

through this uncharted night

I move as if

in a fever dream

Alice in a Wonderland

destination unknown


Drawn further

and further

from my safe

familiar resting place

knowing only

that I am helpless

to resist your aching need

  1. I am captivated by the manner in which you’ve taken what seems to be an internal need, but then subverted the drive behind it, thus making the need to act rather that of an involuntary response. The power of these words lies not in what they willingly reveal, but seemingly in what they fail to conceal. Skillfully done.

  2. I really don’t want to be branded as your site stalker, so will just make this my last enjoyable read for the night. I think. I have a slightly obsessive personality when it comes to tasty things!
