    Tonight

    Tonight

    I looked to my stars above
    The moon has whispered to me
    Though by the lake, I deafen
    Her half face stares at me
    She has grown tired of my face
    A saddening truth that I know
    Yet loyal she sits on her throne

    The lake is still as death
    I dare not touch the glass surface
    The foolish wind speaks of dawn
    Winter's frost crawls towards me
    May its ice pierce my skin,
    But may it never grip my heart
    Forever my heart will lie in my corpse

    Trees stand bare, unaware of me
    Only hemlock holds promise
    Tight as the vine that strangles me,
    But I must breathe
    The darkness needs my starlight
    Death may steal yet another soul,
    But with the moon, life prevails

    No matter what lies beyond the horizon, you can always find a guiding light.

    This is beautiful and haunting with lovely imagery

    Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. ~ Edgar Allan Poe

    Yes, haunting, exactly what word was easing its way into my head as I read this.

    Well done Shadow!

    Shadow Fire

    Thank you for this very original beautiful piece of work.
    The imagery is more than wonderful

    But you know, don't worry trees are aware of us. They know what we do. It is only us that are not aware of them.
