Drape over lonely hours, gloom of night The silence that succumbs me takes its toll I am left with stardust shed from starlight Words behind me, left as ink upon my scroll You're still inside my heart, marksman of my soul Stillest ocean wrath, black by moon's allure The blackbird dips to brush the water's drone Her wings spread wide and mind set free and pure No two-legged demons here to throw a stone She flies into the seaside night alone

    Hello Dana'Lynn, dreamy and amazing lines. The imagery is perfect. I love the deep and darken feeling of no distress when taking this lonely flight. I love this line the most ----> "I am left with stardust shed from starlight" a little alliteration found in the poem... awesomely done ~xox~PD
