Dream Lover

i felt your strength
in those moments
of my weakness
the inescapable honesty
shown me with your deeds
and sumptuous lips

a day never ended
without your hardest efforts
fulfilling your ambitions
and in support of mine
all whilst wrapping me up
in genuine romance

you understood how to
divvy up the day
to attend to your priorities
while ensuring you communicated
the necessary to my mind, body and soul
in words and affection

your comedy left me heaving
with unexpected joy and gasps for air
your intense sex appeal and provision of ecstasy
did me in the same way
lasting just enough
to never dull the desire for more

your swagger was a confidence absent arrogance
sharing your intelligence and knowledge humbly
and possessing such a keen eye for details
my, oh my, you were assembled just right
nature and nurture produced a prize
one i was so lucky to have

in the space we’d hollowed out for ourselves
a dimension of no holds or hesitation
with jagged-edged personal truths
seeing each other clearly
loving each other anyway
our gazes, a connection which couldn’t lie

in tune
in touch
in love
i was nourished
i was supported
i was free
