Jaded Moonlit Glow

In her universe,
thoughts stalk liquid eyes;
a ballet, fluidly crossing
between the actualized and conceived.
Nothing truly materialized,
always on the brink
she reaches for a hand
removed from feeling.

Laughter falls softly on her lips,
compliments softer still;
in the essence of what is,
there is only a beating,
unified with the words;
Images of what should be, but isn’t,
capture her waking dreams,
visions slanted by hopes unrealized.

There are few words of solace
found on these lips;
compassion detached at the heart
long before the conversation began.
It thrashes against stone;
searching for a kinder used
vessel to create a home.

Still, I listen,
forcing a smile.
Hoping, the jaded cast is muted
by the gentle glow of moonlight.
