I dream in red
through the sheets
from last night’s passion
where your hands caressed
the trail your lips created
blushing a little
from your slow moving actions
our synchronized rhythm
soul to soul with no division
but this was only one way
of loving you
one part of being with you
I want more than a memory
stretched into forever
for you and me
hoping this dream continues
even after sunrise
I know it will
from the promise
of tomorrow in your eyes

I want more than a memory
stretched into forever
Ideally this would be the case for all things we appreciate and cherish. At my age though I am thankful for merely the memories(at least the ones I do remember).
I know, this would be ideal, but it’s not always an option. I think we do need to focus on the great memories, too, Carl! Thanks for your comment!
Wow, this is lovely, Lauren! ❤ Makes me all warm and fuzzy inside, haha 😉 Hope you and your family are well! Xx
Heehee, thanks so much, Iris, for your beautiful comment. We’re all doing fine and I hope you are, too! Have a good weekend, also! 🙂 ♥
You’re welcome 😉 I’m doing fine as well. Enjoy your weekend! ♡
Beautifully warm and passionate Lauren; just lovely ❤️ Xx

Reblogged this on Don MacIver; Poetry & Verse and commented:
Experience the delicate splendor of love through Lauren Scott. This poem is absolutely lovely, tender.
Such lovely words, Don, thank you, and for also reblogging my poem. I’m so happy you really liked this one!
Thanks for the tip into this Don…
You realised this altogether successfully in a very evocative way that touched me artfully with sensitive points of recognition throughout … A beautiful, soulful piece – very much my
kind of thing – I will be back to see what else you come up with… With Best Wishes Scott http://www.scotthastie.com
Thank you so much, Scott, for your amazing complement. I appreciate your visit and taking the time to express your feelings, too…I will visit your blog real soon!
Lauren, when time permits please do visit to experience Scott Hastie’s writings. He is really quite remarkable and I believe his style and conveyance will parallel your own in ways. Scott has a marvelous portfolio of publications to his credit and has a considerable following. Scott afforded me the honour of an advance read of his just released ‘Angel Voices’ for which I have written a review…a marvelous work that is an extension of this gifted poet’s heart and soul. You will surely respond as I have with fondness and friendship for a fellow poet who brings a tremendous visual and heartfelt response through his every word.
His works are what literary arts are all about.
You’re most welcome Scott. When I share the written works of another it is a visceral response to words well apportioned, transitioned, crafted to capture the imagination and in some way move me to respond in a positive way. I only recently discovered Lauren’s wonderful works and admire where she takes her compositions. She has a gift.
Don, I apologize for replying late and I don’t know what to say, either. I’m flattered by your kind words and a little stunned, too. I’ll always call myself an amateur or novice poet, but your words definitely encourage me to continue writing…thanks again!
