A Poem by Adam Greenfield

A dream I once had.



She came over around midnight,
said she figured it out,
that she had found it.
I told her I was pretty tired
            and high
but to tell me
She leaned in,
I could smell her skin
that always reminded me
of oranges,
            and she kissed me.
She was right.
She did find it again.

The most intense love poems rarely use the word love - you said it all without saying what she understood and now we see - no matter how tired or high - or asleep - the heart never loses conciousness.

Great little poem. I love the small detail that sets it apart. You are able to take one image and build a poem from it and that is a rare gift. The smell of oranges, my favorite. Great work.

Nice! Simplicity didn't detract from the magic of this one. In fact, I think it added to its strength.

i loved how you didn't stay with a stanza format. i love how you italized certain words, really emphasizes your work. i like how she smells or oranges too because its not something common like roses or some other kind of flower. its something different and it makes it seem more honest and probable. great write!

I loved the soft love that eminated from this piece! It was tasteful and flowed smoothly.
High on life, or anthing else!

Great Write!
