Velvet Astraea Dido

The Slow Mirror

gazing at your shadow
slowly moving
each particle of you show
dancing in the dark
gradually catching the light -
the light wrapping you
sipping outside
sliding away...
your faded guitar
through the spaces behind
blends in the night.

I stare -
at the semblance of you
half dark half blue
as you get blinded by the glare
a spot hang over
between our superficial worlds.

with slow perception
I dive into the distance
and dare to create the voyage of the twilight
and we journey through
endless walks
battled by words and talks
as we roam in the presence of reality
draging the sunset in our pockets.

you cloathe me
with your warm persistence
as my rationality
leave this three dimensional world
and blend in with yours.
