If I was a silhouette
or a shadow that the day left behind
I would be so dark that I could hide
and vanish in the edges
of the slender shafts of light
as they fade softly away
I would wrap myself
in the falling night
slip under your skin
and ghostly
our souls
murmuring words
familiar yet unspoken
into the ethers that circle you
and the winding currents
of memory
I would fly like a bird
just a shadow
against the sky
I would swim
beneath the mirrors
of your eyes
unseen and shifting
like an ocean in your soul
my song calling to you
from the depths of my darkness
