Disappearing with the Dew

When the last rays of sun have 
from an icy winter's sky,
and the ground has turned to 
the night begins to cry.
I come to you in silence,
a vague and distant dream,
a nightmare of your making,
the echo of your screams.
The heartbreak of your 
soft breath upon your face,
the longing of a memory,
you never could replace.
I slither up beside you,
caress your dampened hair,
would you stir and find me?
Alone again, you wouldn't dare.
You smile in solitary sadness,
and fight against the tears,
frightened by the monsters,
unseen by any mirrors.
Suddenly, you shiver,
wakened by the cold,
Crimson parts your burning 
desire left untold.
Morning dances across your 
the lingering of my perfume 
your only clue,
your dream had been a dream 
after all,
disappearing with the dew.
