I can spy

A falling beam of light
shines in your eyes
I can see you standing still
I can spy

Spotlights are dazzling
more beams begin to shine
alone and standing
your bide your time

the music is flowing over the soft curves
of your dress
but there are none to hold you tight
you causally have a drag on your cigarette
pretending
as you lean behind the bar
that life is your lover tonight.

Walk a step
drop a dime
see the beauty of a rhyme
stroke the fire
and watch the colors of the world pass you by

We can see you standing still
over the valleys
of long ago
