i imagine me

nights are winged enchantments
where i lift myself up into the dark
slowly curving to the right
finding the land's end 
my body floats on the water
held up by gentle waves
selkies nudge me and mermaids sing
til the shore of an island is reached
i walk the beach in solitude
writing out your name
drawing hearts and smiley faces
happy to wait for you to discover me
if i were standing in a grocery line
or walking through a park
i would hardly be noticed
yet in my world i shine
the days are very ordinary
and neatly stacked alone
but nights are mine to pretend
i am more than just a ghost
