“For you- My Him..”


I dreamt of Him again.. (sigh)
Him holding Me close.. (alas)
I leaning, against Him.. (..)
Him holding me tight.. (I wish)


Sweet little memories of Him are back..!!
(Haunting me), Making me Blush yet again.
Him has failed Me just too often..
(But) for Now, all I have in my mind- is Him.



Afternote: Love is not my forte- I had only groaned!! I didn’t know that a dream would make me write this..

      (Umm) The Him of my life haunts me any which way… (sigh)
      But that’s the one thing I don’t mind (yaayyy)
      The lesser Hims may rest (wwhhheeww) 🙂

      Gee… After waking up, you wrote so beautifully… I am just wondering what if you could sleep-write!! 🙂

      Bless ya, gal!!!
      Dream good… but dream on.. eventually, those dreams will get better (fingers crossed)

      Till then, here:

        One darn good Kavita I have with me 😉

        I too feel I should sleep- write. Often I get dreams that help me write. This is nothing new. I learnt a few song lyrics in this way.. !! People would not believe me- that’s when I decided it’s time I write all about how it has been with me..

        Only this morning I dreamt of pigeon n there was one in my hand- a white one.. of course I didn’t grub him. I would say it was him (and not HIM) because it swelled beneath its beak.. squawk!!

        Thank you for all your love n wishes.. It means world to me! I have really lost count how much I owe you- but then.. do I? hehehehe

        mwaaaaah xoxox

      The “Him”s of our lives have a way of moving into our minds forever.

      Amusing (in a good way), effective piece.

      Like the song-like quality that almost makes the Him a Hymn. The interjections in parenthesis add personality to the lyrics. Very nicely done.

      Aint love grand? It’ll certainly mess with your dreams, at any rate.

      Uh-oh! You’ve spilled our little secret… now everybody will know you were dreaming about me!

      (Yeah, right… having nightmares! LOL!)

      Nice 55, Olivia!

        Eric, aren’t you cute? hahahaha I really don’t think dreaming of you would be nightmarish 😉
        Thanks for the laugh!

      Firstly, thanks for the invite and the gracious comments. 🙂
      I love this piece! The contradictions are beautiful and heartbreaking all at once. I too dream of my Him as that’s the only way I know to truly have Him 😉 Here’s to all the ‘Him’ s that inspire poignant pieces! And here’s to you for a wonderful read!

        Oct 31, 2010 @ 14:47:56

        Such beautiful feelings that’s conveyed through your words.. Thanks a very big bunch.. 🙂
        Oh yeah- these “HIMs” hardly have any idea what’s going around- but nevermind that- maybe that’s how it works- I crib about Him and they all praise- LOLss
        I am eager to see you link and participate.. Loads of Love My Dear- xox

      Ah…It is the dream realm that surprises us the most…I love the concept of writing about “capital” H him…adds a archetypal feel to this man/relationship/experience….
      First CG Jung created the Demon Lover Archetype

      Olivia brought to light the dynamic Him archetype!! (you will go down in archetypal,depth psychology history…)

      I look foward to reading more Him poems…i already relate based upon some of my life experiences…and dreams


      • Olivia
        Oct 26, 2010 @ 23:33:55

        Lovely Annie-
        I am surprised- really.. * Blush *
        I love occult- if that has anything to do with it- if you look at the tags- his complete name beginning with “Him” is also included!! Again, I am super- flattered Annie!! And definitely I like to research, dig, carve and so on.. since you do a lot of mind- reading, I guess you I have to say- you are very good at it..
        I have hardly started writing and here I have some of the mind- blowing compliments.. 🙂 xxx

        I have also included some dreams in the same blog too..

      very romantic piece Olly.. where is Him now? near yet far or something?

        Oct 26, 2010 @ 23:35:25

        Him is no where around- he floated away each time we hit each other!! Nevermind that.. I should be charging him since he is popular because of Me.. 🙂

      Oct 26, 2010 @ 09:29:30

      I can’t help reading this and thinking the dream version is a much better one than the real one.

      There was a lightness here that I really enjoyed, Olivia.

      Sorry it was only a dream, but happy you wrote a lovely poem. Him would surely be a lucky Him. 🙂

      What a lovely sweet memory. I think it’s awesome that a dream helped you with this poem. I admit I was dreading this topic as well!

      best part of loving someone is even when they are gone from our lives or something their memories can bring us happiness again 😀

      Ah, a crush– all the giddiness of love w/out the follow-through, good or bad. You might enjoy the perspective of my 1st entry, not being a love-poem person either. I’m 14 & 17 on the list.

        Oct 27, 2010 @ 14:56:19

        That’s one of the most beautiful one that I have read this potluck..
        Very satiny and yet real..
        I am glad you stopped by to put in your words here.. 🙂
        Thankyou Love xoxox

      I’ve had plenty of crushes myself, but there’s only one for me now-a-days. Crushes are seeds dear, plant them and see what they’ll grow into.


      • Olivia
        Oct 25, 2010 @ 19:48:02

        I so agree Dear.. Each time I tried to, “Him” had crushed them himself so lifelessly.. I would love to return the favor someday very soon on my own.. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by- xx

      Don’t know.. but some people are much better people in our own world of thoughts.. and nothing wrong in being with their better selves to make life a little happier.. very well written and thoughtout.. wow! A standing ovation to you on this creation..


      • Olivia
        Oct 25, 2010 @ 19:35:30

        Ramesh ji, It’s an honor to read a comment like yours here and from you!!
        You said it- some people are better in thoughts instead of in our real lives.. HIM happens to be one of them.. It definitely took a very long time to achieve this state of only keeping “his” good things in my mind- glad I did..!!

        Warm wishes.. Thank you so much.. 🙂

        Oh yes Victoria- It let me write something whereby I thought it wasn’t my forte- I feel “victorious”.. 🙂

        hahaha.. Jess, I am enjoying it- really.. You know why- because I am completely indifferent now.. otherwise his real ugliness would have kept me bothering.. It’s better this way, i am enjoying the brighter side at least.. LOLsss

      Now this is a sweet poem, I could feel the almost teenage angst and pure love mixed into this piece. I can always count on you to get something out that makes me recall great feelings just like this! Thanks for sharing!

        Oct 25, 2010 @ 09:51:45

        Thanks Leiffy.. 🙂 Aah this one went on beyond teenage hit- Infact we didn’t get to hit it then.. I so wish that I get to now.. LOLsss.. Glad you liked it.. Where’s your Link Dear..?

        I am cornered now- amn’t I..? LOLsss.. The truth is far from any thing beautiful.. I just happened to dream of him; I thought why not give it a try! Atleast I’ll make “love- songs” too..

        Yeah.. blushing.. why not? Let me savor the compliments.. I mean I definitely loved him- so what if he may not have- or did he..?

      a cute poem just like the cherubs.
      dreams are strange affairs. when i was in school a girl used to dream of ravi shastri wooing her like crazy. it was so cute to listen to her.


      • Olivia
        Oct 22, 2010 @ 20:38:22

        Very right- Dreams are so surreal.. moving just in between the reality and almost a reality (virtuality)
        It was definitely a lovely one.. I am still floating.. hehe xx

        HIM happens to be my 1st crush- almost an affair- always bumping into each other after many years- never really meeting.. 🙂
        I don’t think he would be surprised to note that I write now.. Chances are he would be stoned since I have written about him too!! Let’s see how it shapes up.. 😀

        Thankyou for liking it- xxx
