She stood solitary in her own familiar darkness Shrouded by raven's wings Enveloped in the calmness of genteel grace This quiet a restful solitude Let the night be her one salvation Lifting her forsaken wings to salute the voluminous moon Wrapping her in his soft euphorbic ambience Each elongated feather scintillating Whilst silvery moonbeams dance along lithe quills Cradling each insecurity with candescent warmth Her yearning heart an ageless metronome Breathing beneath a tireless body Bandaged in a kaleidoscope of emotions and intentions An endless echo of misting enchantment Wisping amongst mindless shadows Shamelessly striking the chords of a timeless universe
