Dream Walk of Melancholy


Night burns its lamp moon

across my skin where light

seeks a vein.


High on twilight I roam shadows

until monsters no longer dance

in my head.


In the tree above me I hear

a nightingale sing its heart

into the wind.


Companions of melancholy we watch

stars climb closer to the sun and wait

for morning to erase our silhouettes.
