Velvet ghost, 

your sheet a whisper.


Soft haunts

tingle tiny hairs.


Shoulders shudder

with a breath of wind.


Cinnamon and sweat’s 

slow-motion dance


hangs in time —

caught in dusty sunbeams.


I lay in their

golden innocence, 


enchanted by a past life’s 

bittersweet apparition


the fabric of

a broken heart’s slow burn.
