Night Goddess

Her quintessential womanhood,
unmatched beauty, and the way
she looked under the glow of the full moon
were tantamount to a goddess.
She, ruler of night, she, keeper
of my heart, was my paradise.

    1. I couldn’t agree more. I’ve seen over the course of literature, mythology, and even on screen that women tend to have more depth, more sides (like the goddess with six arms, her name is escaping me at the moment), and are able to endure more than most men. Thank you as always, my friend.

  1. Not sure if it’s a coincidence or not, but I just posted yesterday about how quintessential is one of my favorite words and if you use it in a sentence, I assume you are highly intelligent… Way to go smarty pants!!!

  2. I don’t know if you have done this before but it is different from your usual work. It’s more like a story yet vague enough to be open for interpretation, like a good poem should. Nice work.
