Wordless LoveHe hears her each night
The distant creaking of iron gates
the crunching of feet in the virgin snow
as she dances through the stones
Seeking him.. wanting him..
Always in whispers and shadows.
And the way her heart races when she speaks
amusing him with trivial pleas
enough to make him linger in the darkness.
"I know you are here beautiful creature"
She had almost sang in conviction
when a single leaf had caressed her cheek.
The truth was she had never truly known..
yet endless nights she came, to pray to her mysterious, silent idol
To tempt darkness that desired to consume her
Always with love and with hope.
And he loved her.
The way that her blood sang to him
How the scent of her hair carried upon the breeze
He loved her enough to always listen
To always watch her in the darkness
He loved her completely.
