Ephemeral Ballet - Poem by Nenia Haven

hollowed eyes pale skin
running from the darkness within
my body lies listless
you come to me in my dreams
dancing through the clouds
with stars in your eyes
you’re in another world
and i leave myself
to be with you again
you smile kindly
a smile of gratitude and friendship
not enough
you don’t exist in my world
but you speak to me and you say:

you bury yourself a little further every day
you’re killing yourself trying to keep me
and i’m only moving further away

i watch your dancing movements
i can remember
your palms upon my face
eyelashes flutter on my cheek
your butterfly kisses
lulling me to sleep
