If it’s magic…
Why can’t we make it everlasting


She comes on

Down the hall

Shuffling her feet

Just a little

Slowly shaking off memories

Holding on

To her purse

In her best dress

Out of fashion

Quietly anxious though she won’t tell

It’s the day

That they set

Roughly the same

Their rendezvous

Never changes lest they forget

Sitting down

Dreaming on

Tapping his feet

His Sunday best

And the look in his eye unchanged

Waiting on


For he knows that

The time is come

As the sun sets the night is theirs

A knock on the door

Signals the start of it all

Their record is playing

Exit the world and the floor

As inviting as ever

A song and a dance

In the half-light

They own each other

Swiftly they hold

As of old


His thin hair

Her tired eyes

Head on his bosom

Their trembling hands

And the melody plays along

Soft enough

No one cares

Nobody’s there

They’re all alone

Love’s lone gleam fills the room.


Those who cringe

At the decay of mere mortal flesh

Fearing the passing

Dreading the time

Shunning the thought

Putting the light out


The true killer

Is living in lovelessness

Waiting alone

Waiting in vain

Ready to go

    Sitting down

      Thank you. That’s actually the change of focus between her (approaching his room/flat) and him (waiting for her in the armchair) 😉
      You are welcome to read on and share your thoughts. Cheers

    Evocative and true.

      Thanks for your kind appreciation. There are other pieces on similar subject-matters, albeit in Spanish. You can have a read at Penelope’s Looking-glass for a somewhat related issue, however from a different perspective 😉
