The dusky moon

Governs the night sky

And in her ethereal light

Your reflection is all I see

The warmth of your face

The tenderness of expression

Appears all at once

And beguiles me to dream

The sensation of your caress

The heat of your breath

It's so real,

So tangible to me

But as the airy light of moon shifts

The illusion of your presence does too

And your silhouette no longer appears

Before my lying eyes.
