Like The Night

A delicate pressing wind,

A fierce scorch within,

The strength once there has withered,

The snapping of heart strings.


Behind the porcelain guise,

Masking of the truth;

A dance of swirling atoms,

Restores the flickering of youth.


The eyes are rising fire,

The hunger not unseen,

Framing of the flower,

The nectar sucked so keen.


A walking beauty fawned,

With ravens to her sing,

But within a core of darkness,

Fades to another nothing.

The End
