I Dreamt I Danced With Marilyn
I dreamt I danced with Marilyn.
We skimmed across the stars
bound by smiles
we tumbled as we spun
eyes locked, like Ginger and Fred,
I, alive like never before, she no longer dead.
We sailed across a chequered floor
and there, before an open door,
that led to somewhere else
we stopped and caught our breath.
And there, I bowed to her
and then, she smiled
and took her leave
to continue with her death.
Whilst I rejoined the living
my head no longer full
of darkness and of dying.
And then again we found ourselves
By the shore of an emerald ocean
She and I beside its nearness
And she offered me her gratitude
For granting her those moments.
And, again, we parted
ripped that dark divide
to return to where I started
Back to breath and light
to the miracle of existence
