Swept Away in a Dream – Original Poem

By Mark A. Leon

I gave up on love the second you drove away 
An ocean, a lie, a misfortune 
Goodbye

I fell in a place you and I 
A wonderful dream 
A life out of reach
I sang a song for only a tease
A poem, a kiss, a slight way to ease

It was all so sudden
So pure
So raw
Heat of the flame
Intense 
A story of lustful romance
Sweaty and sweet 
An ending without a story
Every detail still lingering in my head

Through the years, the story remains
A blissful reminder of self disdain
No longer a hope, now only a dream
A story so distant; so far in between

Oh how I wished I gave you my name
You were the one I thought I may find
Hidden away for another lifetime

Maybe tomorrow
Maybe another place
I might hold you close and ask you to stay

Another drink alone 
A toast to you
The lover, the dreamer, the one that got away

I miss you in ways I cannot say
Awake I am sane
Asleep you sweep me away
