The reality of dreams (Form: English Sonnet)

Lovers by Josephine Wall

Her footsteps echo in my lambent dreams
exciting me with promises unkept.
My mind and heart were torn between extremes
as onward night, in ebon slippers, crept.

Though tenuous, I could not bring an end
to passion's fantasy of love and lust,
nor would my heart continue to depend
on gift's of Morpheus that held no trust.

As sunlight broke the fasting of the night,
in twilight, twixt dream and reality,
I found that special moment of delight
as lips caressed in sensuality.

Awake, I find her taste, her touch, remain
to tempt me back into her realm again.
