When I close my eyes 

I see you asleep,

beautiful as Endymion,

waiting for some vision

to wake up and love.

to move among mortals,

sharing their passions,

to live and also die.

When I close my eyes

you are fast asleep

in a luscious garden,

waiting for the moon

to rise over the river.

When I close my eyes

you are lost in dreams,

searching for shores

untouched by vessels.

When I close my eyes

you are Endymion,

as you seemed to me

that long-gone day

when we met in a hall

and I learnt then

I would forever be

one of your shores

immersed in a dream-

Mmm… so are you Selene or Hera?! Whatever the case Endymion was also an astronomer….

How do you know you are not the shore in my dream, & the beach where my dreams drift away?

Lovely as always and lusciously curt but packed with imagery of longing to close the distance and traverse dreams.

Fantastic piece, girl. You literally pick up your reader and carry them into a world of your own creation. Exquisite
