Night Phantom

Night Phantom

A Poem by Bonnie Paige

Breath deep within the sanctuary of
euphoric sleep there lay the peace, I do
                     not feel.
Breath deep within the sanctuary of  
 euphoric sleep a rest of mind, I never reach.

You are the beating thunder that 
      pounds away at my soul.
The race to my heart that
   opens up the skies and removes my 
                 rhythmic breath.

In this evening of our re encounter,
    You hold me close, I am alive.
        Arms like temporary shielding steel...awakens me.
Momentary peace takes over my tormented spirit.
     My soul dances for you once again.

Step away, to time away, to distance away, to safety
you stay.  There gentle glance, back upon my face
                          -you felt-.
Fear took over all.  How far into this night of darkness
will you dare to enter?

     Once more I gather the memories.
Your face, now older, your eyes that first drew me up into
             the blue skies of heaven, raced me there again.

Oh fleeting time, I look to gather lips and hands to fingers and tips,
legs and arms, upward traveling, neck and shoulders your body all
                            I must remember.
Before this evening closes into the night.

     Breath deep within the sanctuary of my room.
I sleep the quiet sleep of REM.  At peace upon your spectral mortal essence.
                The dawn brings reality only as
                    I cross the path of peace and rest...

     Now slowly awakening me to the covenant of day.
            Returning me to just the distant voice of my
                             PHANTOM D.

Morning Bonnie.
Well, not really my cup of tea but saw your post and had a read.
I don't think your , what seems like a foot stamping request, plea, order, will be very attractive to most. Could be wrong though...
