“Life is a deep sleep of which love is the dream.” Alfred de Musset

The Possibility Of Her

Carefully crafted, she was a
composite of every fiction,
his pulse quickened,
anticipating the possibility of
her arrival, the creaking door
announcing her, now hovering,
conversing only in tongues,
his tortured lips in flames,
he woke, lost in a fug
as the door creaked.

  2. I found that phrase “lost in a fug” very interesting Paul, so I looked it up and found that a fug is a condition that can exist in a small, crowded place when the air is not pure, especially, because of smoke or heat. Thanks for teaching me a new word.

    • I love your response Lillian, you’ve connected with this as I’d hoped a reader might, I did want to evoke that feeling. But now that you’re hooked, I’ll have to leave you in that quandary to find your way. Many thanks.

    That creaking door feels ghostly. Is she coming or going? Could she be real? I love the possibilities in this.

  7. Dreams and imagination are wonderful, but they can take us only so far…What is the reality here? I imagine it is not a beautiful girl at the door. 🙂
    But of course, it could be. 🙂 Lovely, enigmatic poem, Paul! All the best!

  9. Oh, no, not to waken from the dream. Dear puppet master, please let him sleep just a little longer.

  10. Was she a dream or perhaps a love from a parallel world?
