She Said

by P.T. Brooks

She said you look like
A good night
And bad day I’ve had
And when I saw you
It seemed to
Somehow take me back
She said you taste like
The sunlight
On Sunday afternoon
And feel like the starlight
Covering the moon
She said if you need to
Ill need you
Just tell me where to hold
And if the pain hurts
We’ll play a verse
That turns this city gold
She said if you want me
To lay here and not say a word
You can tell me what you dream
And ill answer you unheard
She said if you want me
To love you
Just show me how to love
And ill show you I’m the dream
You’ve been dreaming of

It feels like a train of thought copied verbatim. I like that. The approach is very well done here.

This is wistful and hopeful with an observer and a storyteller both giving voice to the poem. I like the style. smh
