    The moon hid behind
    a cloud and all the world
    turned dark
    and I sat comfortably
    in a soft chair of
    contingency
    that slowly
    rocked back and forth

    As the moon's glow
    illuminated the night
    sky the flurry of clouds
    began to gradually
    evaporate

    and I looked to
    the right of me
    at a chair that
    although remained
    empty - - swayed
    slowly and in the
    same manner
    as I

    Side by Side ... yet
    with no one sitting
    in the seat
    visible to see

    the evening's atmosphere
    leaves me in silence
    just as I had remembered
    it's coming

    and I ponder
    the question

    Who sat next to me?

    it wasn't i...

    for i would have gladly
    allowed my vision to be
    seen
    graciously
    by you
    had i been so fortunate
    to have sat next to you:)

    THIS IS TYTE.

    {now, i have to write another ghost story...hmmm}
