Under the Moonlight


Cranberry-stained lips
Let young secrets escape seamlessly
Tulle skirts
Flicker shades of pink and powder blue
Beneath a midnight-drenched bridge
Figments of our broken imaginations
Weave dreams of gently falling flowers
Surrounding us
Whisking us away to the stars above
We are princesses of the night
Rulers of a silent kingdom
But with one attack
From a carriage unknown
Our kingdom is gone in an instant
She is left to mourn on her own
As I sit next to her
Unbeknownst to her jaded eyes
Invisible under the moonlight
