Fragile Beauty

I am under no midnight illusions.
For I know where my heart lies.

It doesn’t lie in the sunlight
Or in a valley of lilies.

There are no pretty princes
For caged princesses here.

There’s danger
And wickedness.

There’s wintry nights
And summer shade.

Because I am sin,
Cloaked in mulberry twilight.

I am despair,
Dressed in delicate

I have been weak
And made others feel
The same.

But I do not let
This be another memory on

For I believe
In moonlit nights
And ocean breezes.
Love at first sight
And art that makes you weep.

I believe in breathless
And all the passion and pain
That comes along with it.

Not because I keep the faith.
Or because I believe in poetic kismet.

No, because I believe in the
Devastating brutality of
And the fragile beauty behind it.

I believe that what has been lost,
Can always be found.

Even monsters dream of
Love sometimes.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
