Betrothed to the Night

Betrothed to the Night

A Poem by Sarah Marie

A woman draped in a silver dress
Slinks across a quiet ground;
She is alone but does not care,
The steps of her slippers the only sound.
Her gown sparkles like a diamond field,
The woman shining from veil to toe;
The land glistens behind her brightly,
Her twinkling train making her slow. 
Her bouquet is made of stars,
Lighting up her excited, blind way;
It shines under the night sky’s gaze,
And she prays it will last through the day.
She can nearly hear the melody,
The wedding march in her quick heartbeats;
She cannot help but blush and smile,
And she cannot wait to kiss and greet
The one who gave her the dazzling ring
Made from a shimmering comet’s tail;
And, as if on cue, she sees her groom,
His hair black and wild and skin soft and pale.
He is dressed in dark blue hues
That mimic is large and navy eyes;
She quickens her pace and runs,
Pausing before him, and lovingly sighs.
All the heavens gather above them,
All the twinkling treasures becoming nigh;
All the stars shimmer for the woman
Who is to marry the night sky.

And you do... you do!
Extremely beautiful, a vivid and colorful vision of the night.
