moonlight cascaded around my being
and the song that i heard was loud and clear
hanging in the night like a crystal chandelier
its rhythm overwhelmed my heart
christening my soul with its emotion.
in a moment i realized
it was your essence surrounding me
your grin warmed my cheeks
(and the cool night air).
suddenly, we were dancing
our steps were composed without hesitation
our eyes met for a heartbeat
(and our souls kissed in that glance)
in a breath, i woke up
chilled to the bone and as i looked around
the moon had abandoned me
its radiance vanished
along with your presence.
and the next time i looked at you
your eyes had a wall
your soul was hidden
and our hearts no longer understood each other.
