Moondust and magic
Opals and onyx
Silver and satin
Golden and glimmering

That was her.
That’s who she was.

Ice and wind in winter
Tear tracks and overgrown train tracks
Abandoned buildings and broken windows.

That was me.
That’s who I was with her.

Illusions and mystery
Always out of reach and not to be touched

Such a lovely her.
Such a bewitching her.
Perfect and inaccessible her.

Leaving me behind
Leaving me hopeless and reaching
Even as she lightens her light on someone else.
