Midnight Waltz

Thick night
weaves it's gloves blind
around my face -
Somewhere,
I welcome it's echo
calling to me like the enchantment of lovers
in screams repressed
to my own awareness

The moon entreats
"Reveal yourself!"
Yet in fear's eclipse, I hide
the hollows crying from between my bones
Emptiness shudders
Restlessness, my partner,
tripping over time

Where is equanimity's hand
that I may waltz steady into dreams,
where heroes wait,
where my own cape is alive and full of magic
that we may stride in dance upon this moonbeam?

I curse the gravity
mating with my feet
The stars slip in their haste
as night rises within me
a thousand fireflies bound
despite my own infinity...

MY GOD.

I have watched you for over a year now and you have leaped, leagues and bounds, beyond all that I could expect of a poetess. Your metaphor and imagery astound me.

I need not quote your verse which has moved me, merely allow me to say that this is absolutely the best I've read from you since our first meeting at the roundtable.

If ever I reach this perfection, just shoot me.

You asked on one of the forum if anyone is posting free verse. You are - and it's the best I've read in a very long time. The imagery is beautiful, I could see it as I read it! Magnificent!
