A WALTZ IN THE PARK



Like a secret confided with his last breath
Dangling from his every syllable
He draws me near whispering in my ear
Reaches in to the depths of my soul
He holds my beating heart
In the palm of his cold hand
The demons lurk in the thick murky fog
On my walk at dusk thru an ill lit park
They toy with the last moments before sunrise
While the city seems to still sleep
I’ve said my goodbyes to the tune of violins
Withered brittle leaves stir as death circles
Cold winds whirl and no one sees my tears
I’ve swayed to my last waltz
I can finally forget the insomnia that has me
In the grip of darkness devoid of a guiding star

Tremendous poem my friend. Such imagery. Such insight to the situation when we are alone with our thoughts. Have a great day.

Thanks, Caren. I was actually inspired by listening to Leonard Cohen. I am in the middle of reading his latest book of poetry.

Beautiful, Line! Your poem reminds me of someone I actually saw waltzing in the park at night and I wondered what he had been thinking.
