Wink
Shadow Dancer

I\'m a darkened figure, a secret sable shape
My only invitation was a left open gate
Observing from the shadows, these organised moves
Guests looking hypnotised from sweet harmonic grooves

They prance and they waltz, swing and they sway
Oblivious to the fact that I am only feet away
Barely a shaded vision or a vague outline
My wraith like appearance is scarcely defined

To the music they frolic, canter and spin
It\'s the audible yang to their gesturing yin
I elude them with ease as a dusky profile
Indistinct form with discretion and guile

"Would you care for a dance?" I hear him ask
She nods her approval then engages the task
Each twirl of her dress fans me with air
Their movements suggest they have notable flair

There followed a tango and then a spirited jig
Then both were succeeded by another shindig
In the shadows I stay as a nebulous being
Watching and wary with no body seeing

Now I feel it is time for me to depart
These rhythms still vivid as each beat of my heart
So I silently shuffle like a spectral semblance
To the open window that provided my entrance

Without a trace I dissolve into liquid midnight
An intangible body without discernible light
Completely unnoticed by the lookout guard
A sailing enigma through the darkened courtyard

I\'m safe once again out here in the wild
Smiling away like an excitable child
Why I take such risks I have no answer
I am drawn to the music as a shadow dancer
