Barely a arms throw away
from where you walked
the lights holds it own
to the darkness
leading to another world

oiling over the distance
like a door nailed open
at the edge of the forest
blowing a soft tease of a kiss
at the edge of your thoughts

peeling the darkness from behind
in a beauty in near silence
cherry-picking the moment
leading a different way out
to the way you entered.

Thanks for the comment, Nigel. I wrote these four as a response to my friends pictures taking myself into another world without meaning to really.

a door nailed open
blowing a soft tease kiss
peeling the darkness from behind

each one of these lines takes you into another world Andy
