Shadows written by: Night_sky_of_feelings
Shadows dancing behind my eyelids,
wickedly, wanting to lure me,
but when I open my eyes,
they’re gone like the wind.
In front of the fire,
light dancing on my face, my arms,
filling me with warmth,
while when I close my eyes you two dance.
A beautiful dance,
light and shadow,
You two holding in each other’s arms,
dance like wild flowers through my sight,
and yet it sometimes seems like a fight,
who will win, the dark or the light?
A dance full of grace and elegance,
full of danger and power,
who wears the danger, the power?
and who of the two of you have the grace and elegance?
Can I hear swords clashing together?
Or even the battle cries you give,
while dancing your unending battle in a dance?
The dark is whispering wickedly,
to lure me, wanting to dance with me.
The light is whispering gently,
but with force, wanting me as their partner too.
No, I won’t dance with you,
but I’ll watch you,
because your dances are so beautiful,
but before it can even end, I am asleep.
you still dance, but not in battle,
or to lure me to dance with you,
no, those are the shadows of my dreams,
and I dance with them when I can’t see you anymore.
