We Danced Back to Back


We danced back to back
Watched our shadows dip and sway
The clocks hands ran round and round
To chase our certain sun away.

Brocade forests pillowed our dreams
As the night caught up with day
Trophies pinioned on hourly rack
Could not the coming season delay.

You tied my scarf around your wrist
And tried with some words you found
To say if you never made it back
Our shadows would run aground.

The lighthouse would fall in the bay
The tides laving our dark surprise
And never a clocks hands; never again
Would follow round a star's demise.
