The Lady in the Mist

The Lady in the Mist

In a land where memories are lost within a heartbeat 
Where all of your dreams and imagination find retreat
Somewhere between a glimpse, what is lost, what is real
Drawing you closer into a realm, distant echoes so surreal 

In a forest forgotten, ghostly dense fog, cascading mist
Deep shrouded foliage, solemn effigies, something amiss 
Moonlight shadows, mystical dance, light shining through 
Moisture droplets kissing forest floor, glistening morning dew

In this place, time has no meaning
Forgotten lands, love lost gleaning 
Void between reality and dream realm
All of your senses, truly overwhelmed 

A mystical world, to you and I 
Lost within the blink of an eye
Imagination hold no bounds
In what each corner rounds

A strange entity seemingly floats amongst the trees
As if there were a ballerina dancing within the breeze 
Though you see very little, just a silhouette in the mist
Drawn to an enchantment, a beauty you cannot resist 

Walking a path that lies before you, unfamiliar steps 
Pausing, wondering, what lies beneath it’s depths 
An image once again appears, in one gasping breath 
Phantasmal entity lost somewhere between life and death

Grappling with your mind, and what your eyes truly sees 
A casual encounter, your intuition undeniably disagrees 
In a instant, just a whisper, shadows take on new forms
Awakening your senses, within your internal thunderstorms

Lost in this prism, fear grips your body and your very soul
You amass some courage, confidence loosing all control 
This strange entity that now seems to be, then no longer there
Vanishing into the abyss, leaving you confused and unaware 

She is just the lady in the mist
Guiding you, to what lay amidst 
Merely a shadow of days past
Perhaps a lost love, never to last
