Cradled In The Embrace / Poem by Jerry Langdon 

Poem by Jerry Langdon 

 

Cradled In The Embrace

In the arms of the night

Through a thick violet mist

I can see vivid dreams,

My heart won’t let me resist.

A decent odor of Dior Poison

That wafts gently through the air,

Runs passionate fingers down my spine.

I can sense that you are there.

I hold on to the moment

Not wanting to let go.

I won’t let it slip away

Because my arms fear what they know.

Can’t we dance under the rapberry moon?

The night is playing our song.

My heart goes off like a Rocket.

Can’t it stay this way all night long?

The air around us bleeds;

Raining sweet burgundy wine.

I’m drunk from its intoxication;

Lost in lavender moonshine.

I hold on to the moment

Not wanting to let go.

I won’t let it slip away

Because my arms fear what they know.

Cradled in the embrace of dream.

Taking time to breathe;

Drowning in your spellbinding scent

That I never want to leave.

I let myself sink deeper, deeper,

Deeper still, into your pesence.

Longing that it could be forever

That I can taste your essence.

I hold on to the moment

Not wanting to let go.

I won’t let it slip away

Because my arms fear what they know.
