Dreams of the Dying Bright with the life to come she looked up with a soft smile holding the hand of her personal giant. Her white dress floating above the earth comfortable in the gentle embrace she stood by him as a ghost. Hazy memories of unfinished wishes like a cloud in the midst of a sublime aura persist in the solid waking hours. Tales of romances never written icy alcoves on this side of the night torrid evenings in a secretive desert. Dozing under a fading neon tube restless between two worlds he owns the gift of passionate eternity.
