Shadow Puppets

by Ingrid de Klerck

Inexplicable feelings

capture my soul,

thinking of you heavy on my heart.

Mind spins out of control.

Desires locked deep within

surface again


Shadow puppets are we,

pirouetting upon life's stage.

Changing masks

to our heart's content


savoring love in all its stages.

With blind eyes I see you

as you take my hand

...smiling all the way.
