Pleasant Dreams

So, my love; there you imagined
to have barred this intrusive monster
behind ineffective shutters? Yes, to ease
your mind, my love, go ahead and deceive
yourself of such an unlikelihood.

But beware—when you go to sleep tonight,
this by-you restrained lover will find his way into
your mind. Then, do let your modesty admonish
me; and, by all means, swear by the purity
of your heart how you protested my presence.

Tell yourself that you are blameless—
innocent, and this ruffian overpowered you.
Oh! how you cry out against this outrage—
And I, to top my insolence, go on
believing that you love me in return—
Can one imagine such conceit?

Albeit, in the end, protest as you wish, dear lady,
but accept this truth: you have been ravished,
however unwillingly on your part, as you may claim.

And now—you are welcome to call for help —
or simply pretend this had been a wicked dream?
Or perhaps you may prefer to mildly scold me—
And then—kiss my lips. If I were real.

I'm thinking that she is not the only one that is having fanciful dreams? We all have our darkside. The part of us that wishes to experience that little bit of the "bad boy/girl" within us. Nice job of blaming it all on her. I can't find anything to criticize, so I will leave you with the thought; it can be extremely liberating to put these things in the light to be examined. ~ Geez.

no, there's no dark side or unfulfilled sexual fantasy in me, only creative urges that prompt me to write about the darnedest things as though they were foremost on my mind. I can just as passionately write about last weeks dirty laundry, lol. Thanks, my friend. Appreciate your comment. Jerry

And so, we come to the "dirty" laundry part. Now, tell me...

there really isn't much to tell; but my wife swears by that German laundry product "Persil." It's fairly new in the states, but it gets the smudges out. "Persil bleibt Persil," is their sales pitch. I know it by heart, lol. Thanks, Geezer.

incredible fantasy! along time ago there was a song titled "Dream Lover" I think Bobby Darin preformed it. I love your poem and all of its levels!

thanks for liking my poem. I must mention that the term "fantasy" is not applicable since it is a product of this writer's creativity--all right--so it is a fantasy, lol. Thank you, Dear.
