Sleepwalking In Dreams

I woke from a dream of sleep-walking
across cold glass
to see two ghosts standing before me
the after-touch
of their pale fingers
tingling on my skin;
I did not recognise them,
nor was I afraid of them.
What troubled me most
Was how they didn't look at me,
but looked behind me,
snide smiles on their faces,
waiting to bear witness
before they disappeared.
