Shadowplay

my dreams dwell
within your eyes
a zoetrope
of images
that you spin
flicker inside,
a magic lantern
shadowplay
for which you
are the candlelight.

    1. It started life twice as long but I pruned it back to the lines above which I feel quite happy with. I’m trying to be more economical which sometimes means being quite brutal with phrasing I get attached to in first drafts. Luckily though the site allows for the opportunity to save them for another day.

      p.s. thank you for the comment
