Shadow Dancer


I wake but not wake
and in my mind
I know I'm dreaming
your shadow lies above me
resting on my skin
a shimmer down the length of you
sends a shudder to my core
silver kisses on golden flesh
as you glide and flow
your shadow solidifies
and takes on life
until
we complete the dance
and I open my eyes
only to see
the smoke and wisps
of what is left
of a shadow
slipping from my dream.
