Gothic Woman

Picture courtesy of http://www.glogster.com


She stares out into
darkest night
Listening to the
stillness
The tree’s skeletal
frame
Naked before
her, standing guard

A Raven sits on
its branches, waiting
Watching her
from its beady eye

As the moon glowers
down
Half hidden in
shadow
On one of its
kingdoms
His smile bemused
yet cynical

For it has seen much
over many millennia
Seen life come and
go

But here he sees
hope
This woman who stands
in the night alone
unafraid
The Raven shall be
her guide
And she the messenger
of all
