Phantoms Dance

Phantoms dance
in sunlit rooms

And shadows gather
in the corners
of the cavernous mansion
in which I live
and hide

Inside where there’s
no one else but me,

Refracted and reflected,
stretched out in all dimensions

The shadows offer
thunderous whispers

fAnd the phantoms rehearse
their eerie, silent,
hushed and beckoning dance

In the hesitating stillness
of the moment before
I release my captured breath,

The phantoms
and the shadows

Flutter wings of dread,
fear swells up,

Extends beyond my skin,

Dry-icing me, enticing me
to dance the dance
of phantom shadows,

Enthralled, enchanted,

Adrift inside a dream
