Light a candle for me

by your window

keep a vigil 

for dreams of bright-eyed boys and girls

soaring in swirling silver moonlight,

flying toward the sky

on backs of dragons

so fierce that their stare

could make the moon blush bare.

As phantoms of starlight

dissolve in pools of sunlight

lost in depths of wispy details

this heart must stand witness 

for the stories, the forgotten memory

of a night that was

but could never be

in the shadowed halls of your mind

in the sleeping corner of your heart

where myths live and breathe

and nightmares have teeth

that gnash and howl 

under the fast fading night.
