    i'm slow dancing alone
    with a gigolo moon
    while tattle-tale stars
    sneak and peak in my room

    whispering breezes
    tickle the mood
    as lyrics and melodies
    inspire a groove

    traces of loneliness
    creep through my window
    disturbing the ambiance
    of soft candle glow

    tears of the sky
    splash softly and hiss
    as they slide down the silhouettes
    that hide in darkness

    the bosom of my bed
    caresses my head
    with sympathetic pillows
    and an affectionate spread

    the walls lend support
    with their tentative ears
    and sing a-capella echoes
    of each word that they hear

    silence never sounded so lonesome
    when she was around
    i saw laughter in her eyes
    despite the blues in her frown

    the darkness wasn’t so heavy
    and never lingered so long
    because the union of our bodies
    birthed many a dawn

    now there’s nothing to comfort me
    but silky wayward winds
    fleeting incense smoke
    and this emotional pen
