Honky Tonk Dreamer

There was no sadness
no laughter
no light

she’d long given way
to that myth:

night in, night out

she waltzed in that dream
the one that held
her to this thin scarlet world

lost in the maze
passing other shadows,
other lover’s – indifferent

to their charms, wiles, and lies 

till she found me warm
against the dark
