Dreaming of her beauty

by Marquesas   Jun 17, 2012

Dreams of her keep me asleep
Hauntingly beautiful and gentle
As I reach toward her she pulls away
So I stay at a distance, smiling at her
I sing her songs and recite poems
I tell her stories with happy endings
Anything for her warm smile
Because to see her sad
Would wake me from this slumber

    Hmm... no idea what to say. This is... good. Definitely. And it has a sad yet sweet tone to it. Flows good as well.
    I like how you use "hauntingly" especially when talking about the dream. It paints it out to be a nightmare but you don't want to wake from it. Interesting twist.
