under dusty moonlight

image host

how did I end up here

I've been watching you ever since we met
since our eyes adjusted to the dark 
calm and silent for a moment
which was all we ever needed
I was no longer like everybody else
that's what you said
yet I felt virtually non-existent
a tragic secret lost in time

I've often wondered
why the silence seemed so loud
why I felt a pang of intense loneliness
that crept into my dreams 
and I began to think about other issues
heard the white noise of invisible ghosts
like the sound of breathing underwater
strange that it should feel like my own

I don't know, I only know about me I said
she knows that this has never been true
yet she turns around anyway
and our eyes meet
and all the noise and the voices stop
as I float above the ground into the silence
this is my moment of surrender
do ghosts feel pain?

I investigate her mind
and I'm fascinated by the things I see
the lights, dazzle as they will
are silent under dusty moonlight
so I reach out and I touch her heart
remove a glowing spark from it
that becomes a star up in the sky 
it's been this way since we met

but how did I end up here
