Perfect Partners

He watches as I slip away

each afternoon, keeping time

with the afternoon sun

as it dips below the horizon


Such is our routine


I disappear…completely

into a world set to its own soundtrack

I dance with my muse

as she reveals the day’s secrets


He is satisfied to wait

as I wander the walls I’ve built

Witness to the images I conjure

from words that haunt my mind


Exceptional, our routine


And when I fight my way back,

when I release this energy and return

exhausted and spent,

he is there to pull me back to a safe place


We turn up the music and dance

Celebration, as is our routine
