Scented Nights



unknown artist

Dreams of you unfold in white linen sheets
listening to the songs of Romantica,  lost
in the cosmos  my soul searches for you

Diamonds lace the neck of heaven and I
am caught in the allure of a parallel world
revealing beautiful moments, untold stories

Opening the red door to my heart, I let you in
would you ambush my love, devouring passion
lying in the scent of our love, sedated

  2. Nice phrase: "Opening the red door of my heart" It goes with "white linen sheets".

  3. Your poem is beautifully romantic! I especially love the lines:
    'Diamonds lace the neck of heaven and I
    am caught in the allure of a parallel world'.

    5. Ok, I will be sure to visit! Now you are ahead of the game. Hmm how does one become ahead of the game and what game? Would that be the game of life? Three steps forward and two backwards. Did you ever play that game ‘Life’?

      Delete
    6. Play it? Sure. I even remember the theme song from the commercials!

      Delete
    7. Theme song? I didn't know they had a song.

    8. The game of Life is fun!
      The game of Life is exciting!
      It's full of chills
      And spills
      And highs
      And lows.
      It's all in the game of Life!


      I last heard it over fifty years ago!

      Delete
    9. Lol I can’t say I ever heard that theme song, but it does sum of life!
