I stare across the dance floor
A liquid realm of spinning hues of pink and blue.
Our tertiary education ended
Our last night together is all some will remeber
And then I see her
She smiles like a hunting cat.
All gleaming fangs and hungry eyes.
She bats her melon shadowed eyes
Her link chain necklace clangs like chains
And reminds me of prison bars
She spins and twirls
She sings a song only I can hear
It is not new
I know it but am lost in the memories.
I am transfixed in her gaze.
Caught in the moment that is now.........and forever.
