The dance

Curtains billowing
white lace lilies
fluttering silently
in the fragrant
night breeze
the candle flames
flitting, blushing
playing a torturous
game with the shadows
of the bare autumn trees
whispering.
Shhh... Listen
listen to the music floating
on the air of the night
and the feet keeping time
a one, a two
a two, three, four,
tap and turn
silk skirts whirl
satin shoes twirl
as arms encircle
diamond rings glitter
the wine spills
red, oh so red
like the lips
slightly parted
holding in unsaid words
the music caresses my skin
as I dance alone
arms around a phantom
still air I hold
and no it's not lonely
not at all.

Osmosis

If we live in parallel universes
why aren't the membranes permeable?

Why can't I dive into your world?
Into the glory of the colours so deep
The greener grass, the inkier sea
The bloodier sky , the milkier moon
The riotous flowers gently floating
like blaring, psychedelic hallucinations

Tell me, why you can't flow into mine?
Why can't you let the dusk envelope you
The soul weld its shadow to your being
Aren't you tired of the glorious light
Don't you need a bit of soothing darkness
a bit of undisturbed silence
to lull you to sleep

Side by side, joint at the hip
are your world and mine
Disfigured conjoined twins
seemingly unaware of each others
blessed and unfortunate existences.
