Lusilvara

Perhaps, it was by magic I awoke
Your words like an alarm upon my slumber when you spoke
A dream, the siren broke
A flare that shuddered through the smog and through the smoke

And glowed beneath my half-awakened mind
Like sun in but a sliver from the curtain it’s behind
That still I knew to find
Beneath the lidded eyes where consciousness was blind

And so I thought to call upon your name
To wonder if your living thoughts had offered you the same
Or would I just exclaim
And wait for words where even echoes never came?

But at your altar, still a coin I placed
If only to remind you, when you’ve fled, I’ve always chased
With words that should’ve raced
But never did at such a pace to see you there for but a moment, lunar-traced
