In dreams I forget the meter; I can be the white knight. I give a nod to my altered ego, we ignite in a shower of sparks and burn slow under the roof of the portico.
We play hide and seek in the galleries and arcades. We move to cavalcades of unseen horns and bells and I'm sworn to hell if I show my whole self to you.
Tell the truth for now; tell the truth and shame the devil. If you find me masochistic, it won't surprise me but disguise me. As for me it's guaranteed to be a lie no matter how hard I try - I can never seem to hold on my dreams.
In the morning i don't remember; I have only my temper and dry eyes and your splendor in whispered sighs fades on a delay with static peals, thunderclaps and tangerine sparks, batted back and forth in the dark.
