Ann's Corner

A taste of FAITH, a touch of LAUGHTER.

“Poetry Offering, #4, Dream Reality


Dream Reality

 

You have a strange effect on me

Like a hallucinogenic drug

When you come into a room unexpectedly

Everything shrinks except you and I

 

My total perception is altered

My right hand doesn’t know what my left is doing

I am floating in an inexplicable cloud

Of almost unbearable tension

 

You have the power to shake my very life

Your influence does not weaken, even though

You may be absent from my life

For long periods of time

 

You are at my core

The center of my being

I wish I could allow myself

The full pleasure

Of your presence

 

Ann Justin, November 18, 1980

I wrote this trying to describe the effect my late husband James had on me whenever he was around, before I really had any kind of relationship with him. Obviously, there was a very strong sense of his physical presence…….this pic is from a few years later, after we married.
