Blurred Apparition

 

I sought images of you in calm waters

wayward vision of you forced me to see

what our lives could have been together

Inner perceptions from the abyss begins

as grey light of the moon fell in ghostly shadows

casting a fiery glow on the water

You stood dark, so dark on the calm river

tears dropping, stretching ghostly hands

calling my name in phantom voices

I moped, transfixed in blurred apparition

and as the sun chased the night away

I tried grasping the intangible image

but traded substance for shadows.
