An offhand word
How absurd that it should call to mind
Another time that never was
Except the echoes of a voice
That whisper words I thought I heard
Measured long in beating hearts
And breathless moments murmured
Buried now like unsolved murder
Where sweet dreams turn
To nightmare screams
In the arms of a shadow lover.


2000 Sonja Torres
