Past Midnight.
« on: May 19, 2019, 05:34:26 PM »
Past Midnight.

Through the open window
The night breeze, urgent now
Rippling, persuading
The lace curtains
To join the dance
She turns again
Blends the ticking clock
To the drip of a distant tap
Into an uneven beat
To fit the discords of memories
She reaches out
Fingers the empty pillow
Recalls the tangle of hair
The ghost face softened
By half light
Where do you rest tonight
My walk away darling
Does she trace the love lines
Down, down as I once did
Tell me lover
Into the small hours
Known well to the lonely
Passing headlights
Chase bedroom shadows
As she closes her eyes
and swallows the pain.
