Theme: Loneliness

The Woman in the Corridor

The woman in the corridor
Moves lithely towards him.
Her shadow, a dark tentacle of desire,
Closes around him as he watches
The light in the window behind her
Struggle against the darkness
In the long, narrow corridor.

The woman in the corridor
Could be his fickle friend
Coming back to him.
Will she change her mind yet again,
Turn into a room and disappear, he wonders
As her shadow slithers towards him
In the cold, narrow corridor.

The woman in the corridor,
Unmindful of the distant sound of music,
Pushes back a drooping strand of hair.
Is it the silhouette of a woman walking up to him,
Or is it a trick of the light,
He wonders as he lingers
In the dark, narrow corridor.
