By: Robert Anderson
i'm lost in a dream where
she stands against the midnight sky

her breath... betrayed by how the touch
of winter arouses the delectable air
across the slender light of the moon

and oh, as i watch her
she looks off into the distance
from where she will ever be--
this appertaining apparition.

i cannot help
but to fall utterly in love because
that moment, acquainted with my soul,
draws from me an undying urge:
to know her flawless essence.

Robert Anderson
