Another ABCEDARIUS Dream
A heartbeat away, so you said.
Blushed from toes, up to my head.
Coy, from the first day I met you
Didn’t think first love would be true
Expecting you were going to stay
Frantic you were going away
Going far? I felt I should ask.
Hoping I heard her correctly
I could not ask her so directly
Just a heartbeat away, I said, you said
Keeping the worse thought in my head
Looking, watching her lips form the words
Me, feeling frightened, terrified, scared
Now thinking I had not even been heard
Opened her mouth, and then she kissed me
Pleased, and I’m sure that she could see
Quite how, much my mind couldn’t say
Realised I’m creating a not needed dilemma
Sell yourself, so come on, and go tell her.
Tell her, you thought that she was leaving.
Understand, she must know how I’m feeling.
Very sweetly, explain your heart is aflame
With love. So take her aside and explain,
Xenodochial is my nature, love, a feeling new.
Zing, zing, zing, another dream just blew
