Midnight Dance

starry-starry-nightDeep chill in the air
alone in the street
scuffling at midnight
the only sounds, their feet

Dark sapphire sky
swirling clouds whisper above
the two reunite
a long lost love?

Dancing to the rhythm
of the ocean sounds
I tremble, it’s strange
inside, my heart pounds

A man’s long overcoat
and a woman’s fancy fur
covering bedtime pajamas
for shoes, a house slipper

Rising from bed
maybe never slept
these two out of place
the sky opened, and wept

Am I here,
is this what I see
a peculiar moment
this scene, a dream?
