Queen of the Night

She lies in pitch black

A silent sun

Whose gentle glow shines on


and all things


in shadow 


She ebbs and flows

like the waters of the sea

Hiding pieces of herself for

days at a time

Until she decides

to finally, shine


The woman dances

and howls at the sky

For when she bleeds

the moon is black

And the night falls silent

And the woman retreats

into shadow



And when the woman dances to the song of silence

she hears the cries

of heartbreak

Hello! I'm a 17 year old writer/poet from London, my favourite colour is lilac, and I guess my biggest aim is to help people love and value themselves - to see their inherent worthiness. I hope you enjoy my content!
