Forbidden Reverie

In a hazy reverie, we embraced.

I gave myself permission to dream about the days

Where our starry eyes locked in a gaze,

Constellations in my brain.

Warm breath; cold weather as it rained,

Drops raced down our windowpane.

The light touch of your hand,

our bare feet on the sand,

feeling every grain.

Waves crashing against us,

We sat in a storm,

Clouded with longing for one moment more.

Your voice sounded like cinnamon when you called.

In your inviting arms, I wanted to fall but I could not

As I thought, if the storm let up

To snap out of my dream, I must get up.

Hi, my name is Ria! I'm a junior at Barnard College of Columbia University, currently living in Manhattan.

I've always enjoyed writing and aim to express feelings and inspire others through poetry. My biggest inspirations for my poems are the "a-ha" moments that I experience, the fairy lights in my room, and words that I simply think just sound good together.

Thanks for checking my writing out! For project inquiries, shoot me an email at riamavin@gmail.com. :)
