Can this really be happening?

dreams make moments and moments make memories

A black charger, red collar shirt, black shorts, and a set of golf clubs

What could be any better then watching him walk in to the club house?

Oh how I wondered what his voice sounded like, what he smelled of,

What it would be like to watch him play, what it would be like to play with him


The instant feeling that rushed thorugh my body when he smiled and flipped his hair

The moment when my heart is beating faster then I can say stop

When my mind begins to wonder what it would be like to play with him, never figuring it would happen


I watched him warm up on the driving range, I watched him tee off

Only to notice he's following me while I was still in a daze

The guy I had dreamed about is only a few holes behind me

I looked up and stared at him some more while he teed off on the 13th hole only to lock Eyes with him and know that he's been doing the same thing

I automatically look away and curse myself because my heart knows something just Clicked in that short moment


What could give a girl butterflies in her stomach?

When I retee off on the back nine and he's standing behind me watching

I tell myself don't mess up just hit, I hit and he says that was good

He asks if he can play with me and before I can even think I automatically say yes

He tees off and I think this must be a dream this cant be happening


We play 5 more holes together the whole time laughing and enjoying each others Company

On the last hole I watch him look for his ball only to realize that it's laying right next to Me

I look up and tell him it's right by me its been here the whole time, he stares at me and Asks why I didn't see it earlier, I laugh and say cause I wasn't paying attention

We both laugh

As we stand on the green I watch him hold the flag and know that this wasn't a dream That this was really happening, that I was playing with the guy that I had dreamed of

The Dream

All trembling in my arms Aminta lay,

Defending of the bliss I strove to take;

Raising my rapture by her kind delay,

Her force so charming was and weak.

The soft resistance did betray the grant,

While I pressed on the heaven of my desires;

Her rising breasts with nimbler motions pant;

Her dying eyes assume new fires.

Now to the height of languishment she grows,

And still her looks new charms put on;

Now the last mystery of Love she knows,

We sigh, and kiss: I waked, and all was done.


‘Twas but a dream, yet by my heart I knew,

Which still was panting, part of it was true:

Oh how I strove the rest to have believed;

Ashamed and angry to be undeceived!

- Aphra Behn

Main Idea

The poem describes how he dreams of his true love. What it would feel like to have her laying in her arms, to kiss her, to have her all to himself. The poem has you feeling as if his dream was happening in real time. only to find out in the last few sentences that it had only been a dream. The main idea is to let you get wrapped up in to something that could happen so easily only to be crushed when reality happens.

Reasoning

I chose this poem because the day before my dream had semi come true. I also chose it because it happens basically everyday to people around the world whether it comes true or it doesn't, it happens all the time. I also picked it because its more along the lines of a modern day poem.

Connection

The connection between my poem and this poem is that they were both dreams. The only difference is that mine had come true. Mine had been in actual reality, while The Dream had only been just that a dream. Another connection is that it really makes you think about your dreams in life whether it be a career or a guy/girl. It makes you think about your future.

19 you and me

It was our first week
At Myrtle Beach
Where it all began

It was 102°
Nothin' to do
Man it was hot
So we jumped in

We were summertime sippin', sippin'
Sweet tea kissin' off of your lips
T-shirt drippin', drippin' wet
How could I forget?

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me

We had our first dance in the sand
It was one hell of a a souvenir
Tangled up, so in love
So, let's just stay right here

'Til the sun starts creepin', creepin' up
Right then I knew
Just what you were thinkin', thinkin' of
When I looked at you

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me
...you and me

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
Beautiful, beautiful

Watchin' that blonde hair swing
To every song I'd sing
You were California beautiful
I was playin' everything but cool
I can still hear that sound
Of every wave crashin' down
Like the tears we cried
That day we had to leave
It was everything we wanted it to be
The summer of
19 you and me

First week in myrtle beach where it all began..
