I watched you, while rainclouds gathered
In the sky above us.
And you were so beautiful as you sat,
Unconscious of my attention-
Innocent to my affection-
That my mind created for us
Grand castles surrounded by endless gardens,
Where we could forever escape these lives
And live loved and loving from now til forever;
Or perhaps where I could at least
Hold you in my arms, smelling you
Bathing my soul in your scent
And letting my heart race in the nearness of you.
But while I sit here dreaming,
You stand and walk away
Scattering the remnants of my fantasy
And ending my sweet reverie.
