Secret lover


That moment between sleep and waking,

when limbs lie heavy sinking into reverie


where I can float on unseen currents of air,

find you standing without misconception.


That moment between life and love

when the heart stretches to open,


& passion flies in like a golden eagle,

with the sun  flaming its wings.


Each time I see you it’s the same

some  huge unseen force empties the room,


I devoid of oxygen left gasping like a fish

on the beach of  outstretched hand;


here lovers mingle at the corner of the street

traffic noises whirr inside our lives, but, you and I adrift,


an unknown sea of stars collide at corners of the bar

where neither one can speak, of the love we feel.

    Brilliant as always Victoria! Been keeping up with all of your writing lately. Must say, it’s probably a highlight of my day reading your poetry, sometimes relating deeply to it. Blessings & Best always.
