We met at a party and
I asked you to dance.
Our silhouettes swayed
across walls of shadows.
I felt sorrow for the light.
We sipped champagne and
sheltered in the warmth of
a narrow bed,
pale now with memories.
When you left intractable
sadness filled the space
Did you not believe me
when I said how much I love
Return to these eyes that can
see only you, follow me through
the scented woods and along the
river bank that when you are near
becomes a wonderland.
Once again let me search your
eyes for memories of us.
Now I’m alone on this lonely coast
and with no one but you in my mind
I’m an ordinary beggar insane with need
of a queen, an angel to brighten my world.
Unless you return I will forever
wander through days and nights of lost
dreams of shadowed silhouettes,
lost in dreams of our shadowed
