My Dream Of Sevens



I am the only one.

When I blow on the candle next to my bed,

It lights and burns.

When I pour water from the pitcher to the bowl,

It makes the morning come.

Come and kiss me,

Right now.

By the time my pen meets the page,

I'll be gone.

It's what I've tried to tell you all along--

I am a condition of atmosphere.

Mine are the lips,

Mine are the hands

That can both create and calm your gorgeous storm.

I am the Queen Bitch your demons are afraid of.

I am the sweet dream who gets up and makes you breakfast.

I am the rain off a bird's wings,

And I am the ridiculous girl who'll believe any outlandish thing

You press to my ear with your tongue.

I am all of these.

I am the one,

The only one

Who loves you this fiercely

This helplessly

This endlessly.

I am the girl with a gift, and I long to place it in your hand,

Closing your fingers around it with my own;

If only you would reach out

And let me.

Superb! You're so natural with your words. And this one is a fine blend of sensuality and metaphysics. Loved it.

"When I blow on the candle next to my bed,

It lights and burns."

Cheers for this particular lines.

Dearest Shay,
I am here, I am slowly catching up. I promise I will go back and read all the poetry I have missed. It is now "Shay Time.":)

This was very sad and beautiful, with every word written I can feel the emotion just pouring out.

XOXO

You often wonder if people know what they have.

I thought today was all about the 9s?

This was a really good one. I like the line about the Queen Bitch.

It is "My Dream Of Sevens" because seven is widely regarded as a lucky number, but in numerology it is an obstacle number.
