I've got you locked in my mental clock.
When I meditate, I go back to our first date.
A different time that no longer exists.
I say I don't need anyone; yet, my dream persists.
I step into the stream where I last danced with you.
If everything isn't true, then why do I still love you?

This love poem was inspired by my first novel (unpublished) about a young politician, Ken who's miserable with the adversity in his career until he meets a young woman, Kaylee in a coffee shop in his dream - only this is not a dream but a place where lost souls are trapped. As he helps Kaylee to heal the emotional pain of her past, he soothes the struggles of his own soul. However, if Ken saves Kaylee from her suffering, he will lose her forever. To make things worse, there are dark forces who don't want Ken to learn the secrets of their world. 📖
One of my favorite things to do is write fiction and poems that has a romantic element in them. Love can bring great passion; yet, it can quickly turn dark with sorrow. That's why in many novels and movies, you'll see a love interest in the story for that dramatic effect. So long as you can see romance as an adventurous journey rather than something that has to remain in cloud nine forever, you can appreciate its beauty. ❤
