Ah, the nights of promise ... and promises broken ... and new promises again.

 

Last Dance That Was: A Tribute
(to Smokey Robinson, Simply Red, Michael McDonald, Phil Collins, Barry White, Meat Loaf and Sting, and them that would be them …)
 
It's the music that
reminds me of
time passing,
taking me back --
Four bars of intro,
mellow seduction,
And I am there again:
Magical dark,
smoke and mirrors,
and all the pretty boys.
Ah.
It was not
so painful then.
But memory
is a minefield,
and I am
limbless,
fractured in
remembering,
splintered
in soul.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
