I waken to a hazy world

Rub sleep from my eyes

And peer into the mist

I stand within a small bubble of existence

Alone save for the rest of the world that lives

Hidden behind this blanket of suspended water

And I catch the momentary glimpse

A sneaking movement of air that billows

Around the phantom of my heart

My ghost, my love

My fantasy

I feel you there

Hidden within the moisture

A dream of wanting

Just a breath of air

A sigh on the wind and

My name on your lips a shiver

Down my spirit

As I reach through space

And grasp at empty air

Your memory sliding through my fingers

And the sonorous lilt of your laughter

Echoing through my heart
