Last night

You came last night
dressed in your best suit 

My heart fluttered 
as you smiled
that familiar, disarming smile 

That gold wrapped box 
you held 
glistened
in the light of the moon 
that looked almost
like a halo behind you 
But it was blurred 
by the mist in my eyes 
as you placed 
under my feet
those beautiful ballerina shoes

And I lost myself to the music 
and to you
for what seems like an eternity 

It still smells of you 
all around me 
almost as if 
you were really here last night 
Just you 
and me
No accident 
No wheelchair

You manage to create always a strong indulgence in your writing. A beautiful beginning like a dream, like a fairy tale, intriguing, intimate and then suddenly, the hard grave truth. Still, a hope lasts, everytime.
A wonderful write.
