I Lived a Dream

by Tom Horonzy

Have you lived a dream? Contest Winner 
Beneath the covers on satin sheets, 
I am convinced, lies a latent power 
waiting to be released.
It's electrifying.
I'm drawn to its shape 
as a magnet is to steel
recalling skin soft as silk 
with hair flowing where
the small of the back desires kisses.
What is the switch to turn off to on?
I offered charm last night and in retutn
got a yawn and a good night kiss.
Water and electricity don't mix.
So in the light of dawn, I drew her close, kissed her neck,
hoping for a positive reaction. She murmured a coo 
which made me ask; what should I do next? 
Nothing. She took over as "Outer Limits" did on teevee
where they controlled the volume, the horizontal and vertical.
I did not dare to "adjust a thing." I was living my fantasy.
And that is all you need to know.

Never having a mind at rest, this was "a dream" I must confess. Fictional. Right?

Lay means "to place something down flat," while lie means "to be in a flat position on a surface." This originally was written with lays in line two but Susan mentioned otherwise and I searched to find what you just read and changed lays to lies.

I like using my own photography and will if an edit allows me. (It did) The picture depicts a dreamy field where anything can happen.

After itâ??s release, this piece shows differently than itâ??s original layout. I tried to correct but, nope, it has a way of its own.
