The Party Last Night

He wasn’t invited
to the party last night
but he was there

and although his face wasn’t in my sight

he was
the music I heard
the pictures I saw
the words repeated to me
he was even in the flames
of the fire dancing so beautifully

at one point I heard him whisper my name
it came drifting on the breeze
it was perfect timing of course
because of my anxiety

and I promise you this
I reached my hand back
to grab his
but all I caught was the mist

sometimes I dream when my eyes
are open wide
that’s what I did
at the party last night

  1. Haunted by Christmas Past. I think we’ve all been there but none has put it so eloquently. Reaching out and catching nothing but mist… gives me goosebumps.

    Neat concept too.
