violet shades of blue

I dreamt of him in violet shades of blue
Much like the starry blooms of columbine
He taunted me with whimsy and with wine
And softly whispered thoughts of passion too~

I graciously accepted with a smile
He hinted secret promise in his eyes
I sighed and felt a thousand butterflies
And let myself surrender for awhile~

He laid me down beside a silv’ry stream
And brushed his fevered lips upon my own
I melted neath his touch with every moan
while vowing ne’re to wake up from this dream~

Now every night adrift in dreams anew,
I long for him in violet shades of blue.
