A Universe

All these years later
I still dream of you
A day in the park
Late spring
Under that tree
Hiding from the sun
Half asleep
You
Tracing secrets
In the palm of my hand
Whispering a universe
Of desire
In my ear

All these years later
I still dream of you..

Late spring
Under that tree
Hiding from the sun
Half asleep

You

Tracing secrets
In the palm of my hand
Whispering a universe
Of desire
In my ear

But that's just me and this poem is pretty powerful as is......stan
