Perfect Partners

mark and michele (2)

He watches as I slip away

each afternoon, keeping time

with the afternoon sun

as it dips below the horizon


Such is our routine


I disappear…completely

into a world set to its own soundtrack

I dance with my muse

as she reveals the day’s secrets


He is satisfied to wait

as I wander the walls I’ve built

Witness to the images I conjure

from words that haunt my mind


Exceptional, our routine


And when I fight my way back,

when I release this energy and return

exhausted and spent,

he is there to pull me back to a safe place


We turn up the music and dance

Celebration, as is our routine

  1. This, My Dear, is an Awesome piece!!!! I loved it. So great that you have such a perfect partnership, so nice he is willing to “share you” with the muse??? Loved your line – “keeping time with the afternoon sun as it dips below the horizon”!! Bravo!
