Queen of the Night

She lies in pitch black

A silent sun

Whose gentle glow shines on

death

and all things

hidden

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

too

.

And when the woman dances to the song of silence

she hears the cries

of heartbreak
