I see a shadow dancing in the corner of my mind
Its form so free, romancing, moving fluidly in time.
It whispers tales of lovely things while spinning webs of lies
Taunting, flirting, telling me to give away my life.
I shift my focus for awhile seeking to undermine
This shadow’s beauty, still romancing, dancing in my mind
But all the while these alluring thoughts weigh deep inside
Haunting even sleeplessness as if they owned the night.
I hear enchanted music drift so sweetly through that I’m
Want to near the shadow that’s been hidden in plain sight.
This shadow dancing, still romancing, ever in my mind.
