Kohl Eyed Sun

From the dark passage of a full moon night,

Came her skin of roses and ivory,

And spells cast on enchanted water,

Brought forth her tresses of magnetic death,


While thorns turned into her tender bones,

Her eyes swallowed the light of stars,

To shine on my broken soul,

Making me whole again,

Under the shadow of her kohl eyed sun,

Where my heart remained in her cupped palms,


Waiting to become one with her ruin,

Sinking to the bottom of her lake;

Of beauty and darkness,

Where I lost and found meaning,

Like the moth does,

When it flies into a flame…
