This was written for August Prompt #2 on Free Verse Revolution.
I stumbled upon this beautiful website and then was going through the contents when I saw the prompt “Love in the Dark”. Without second thoughts, I started writing and sent the poem. And to my delight, it has been chosen as one of the best 3 submitted for the prompt.
You can read the other two poems with the announcements here.
Thank you Kristiana for the love 🙂 ❤
I hear darkness calling out my name,
capsuling the warmth of fireflies,
and melody of unfurling winds.
For the love of wickedness and
the sake of love in the dark,
coaxing and tempting with the best.
The moon rains over the blades of grass,
waiting for their diamond shine.
Dark silhouetted trees swaying in unison,
profiling a profound affinity to harmony.
Was it love cuddled in the black blanket,
or a maze game set up,
by the dark queen for her victims?
Any note was welcome for
I was not scared of her and her army.
I have done this before–
the mind game and the hide and seek.
The dark tune was not new to me,
for my soul danced to it.
If she was the queen, then,
might I be called upon as the princess.
Galloping on my wildest dreams,
on the darkest of nights,
I have kissed many a frogs,
but none turned to be the charming prince.
Yet I love darkness than light,
for it gives me the pleasure of vision,
to penetrate the thickest of skin
and hardest of hearts.
Darkness has given me love too.
I have traveled on moonbeams,
and flying on the clouds,
I have reigned a kingdom of dark love
And one day, I still hope,
to find my prince among my dreams.
