Delicate

Ethereal 
Floating in darkness
Missing already
Another moment passes

Two shades of light
Is all that falls
Within the lines
All else is naught

Gaze surpasses
Image in sight
Only sees face
Smiling bright

Sitting in ghostly
Shapes tuck closely
In viewing rooms
Surrounded by you

Cornered by want
Titles reveal
Reflections haunt
Time to steal

Empty spaces
Under glass
Echoing words
Of the past

Clutching at
Elegant moments
Awe and delight
In full view

Feeling blue
