FORBIDDEN GIFT

FORBIDDEN GIFT

A Poem by Red Rose
"

A priceless escape from reality...

"
You revived last night.
All through a cursed gift.
A gift of momentary happiness
And the curse of remembering you.
Once again.

Dressed in a glamourous gown, I held my head high
Extravagant curtains draped the grand hall,
with a crowd fitting for a royal ball.
There you were among the sea of faces,
completely obvlivious of what's to come.

Then you turned, my heart skipping a beat,
just the way yours did.
Our eyes connected as did our souls.
I missed that aching feeling,
the feeling that made you whole.

You walked over, the talking drowned out.
The two of us alone, we didn't breathe.
I waited till you disappear, I waited till you walk away.
You didn't and we reemerged inside my head
Your hand reached out, stroking my cheek 
as I etched your handsome features redefined in a suit.

Suddenly in your arms, I didn't move.
I held you tight, you holding me tighter.
You whispered in my ear the priceless words
"If I had known you will make me feel this way
I would never have gone.."

My eyes forced open, you vanished.
Dull light flooded into my mediocre room
Still felt your warm arms wrapped around me,
But it was only my blanket.

Oh man do I know that feeling of being so much more intuned with the mind's sweet illusion rather than what the real world has in store for you, gosh damn what a bore..... All rhyming rhythmics aside this was well fleshed out and kept me reading perhaps because no matter the age, gender or personality type we've all at least once had a dream that was too good to be true.

This is an interesting & original thought: dreams come to us, then they're taken away. Even having this intro, I still found myself a little surprised to get to the ending & find out it's all just a dream. I was THAT carried away by your descriptions, that I became immersed in your dream meeting, as if it were real.

lovely write quite mesmeric at times, but one question....

I waited till you disappear, I waited till you walk away sits very uncomfortably with me....a mixture of tenses surely....maybe it is just ME. Fine poem nonetheless
