A Dance of the Night

To seduce the light

She dances

On the heels of time

She reaches for a sky

That has already left her

Alone in the darkness

Now she breathes in the night

As if to hold it close

It claims her as its own

So she dances

On the edge of time

One foot at a time

As a beacon

To the lost souls

Who runs to her

Seeking a salvation

She can never truly give

So she dances

Again

And again

Until she is no longer on this plane of reality

Gone from the earth

She has fled

Dancing for the heavens to see

Her seduction

Has won

The heart of a love less permanent

Than the wrinkles of time

My fickle being
