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.

what's lonelier?

dancing alone by moonlight
the music flowing over you
the candle gently flickering
casting a lonely shadow
on the unadorned wall
of you dancing alone
arms around stale air
feet giving company
to none, no one

or together sleeping
facing away
staring at two different
dreamless blank worlds
plunging into
infinite darkenesses
of charcoal black trees
and their mutating shadows

being alone is not so bad. :)
