Dancers

 

My dreams

are often filled

with shadows

thin echoes

sad whispers

fading ghosts.

 

But sometimes

they are filled

with dancers.

 

Beautiful

elegant

sensual

dancers.

 

Perhaps tonight

you will dance

for me.

Ghost

She releases my hand

I wake from lost dreams on a bitterly cold Sunday morning with the shape of her name caressing my lips like a kiss.

A reluctant grey day has already crept in from behind the heavy curtains and made the room pale.

I search for her in the shadows knowing she is always beyond reach.

I swear I hear a faint cadence of her laughter from a place far away.

With a flick of her hair and the ghost of a smile her image fades.

Sometimes I am not even sure who she is.
