    night was a cloak of black velvet
    draped heavily over
    gently sloping shoulders
    but she wore it well
    dancing only in the shadows
    of wishes and dreams
    never to be realized
    mourning a spirit
    that never had a chance to be

    falling stars cascaded
    from her eyes
    in a celestial tsunami
    that revealed only a fraction
    of the pain that eclipsed her heart

    love breathed her last tear
    into sun
    and bathed in its blazing light
    she shed the night
    revealing the aurora borealis
    that had always been within
    now she dances in day
    her heart at peace finally

    joy does come in the morning

    NICE

    Nice words...I'm feeling it. I do hope to go as deep with structure as people like you. I'm so to the point it's almost no fun.
