A Visit

 

She acquiesced

Undressed

Unfurled her golden hair.

 

‘Come on,’ she sighed,

Come-hither eyes,

Stroked her thighs

 

With a fingernail.

She was pale

Against the night;

 

Glowing, translucent,

Fragile, Parian white.

Her skin fluttered

 

Above her heart.

‘I am your dream,’

She softly breathed,

 

Walked slowly along

The crisp edge of the

Dead side of the bed,

 

Ran the palm

Of her hand

Over long-cold sheets,

 

Over distant memories

That brought thoughts so sweet

To her lips

 

That her smile

Lingered while

She resurrected spectres

 

Of her own.

One day she will stay,

Because I won’t have to wake.
