Email Poem |
The man a shadow in her room
a ghostly apparition dim and obscure.
He watched her sleeping in the dark
her hair shining in the moonlight
her lips ruby and lush and skin so delicate.
He moved . . .
towards the sleeping beauty.
Passing a mirror . . . the reflection
of a skeleton form, vague and hazy moving.
A transformation, a dark silhouette of a man
leaning over for a sweet kiss.
hesitating, he lifted beauty . . .
Walking the winding path of a cemetery
the two were a silhouette against the sky.
She was found in the morning in forever sleep.
