Midnight Sacrifice

Green eyes sparkling in shadows ,soft mist
Waiting with anticipation of love’s first kiss
A forest of magic ,the spell soon to cast
Was said to bring a love for an eternity to last

Hair the colour of wheat in the noon-day sun
Tendrils,softly falling from her loosely coiled bun
Aye, dressed for her wedding to a man she knew not
But …this need she was too powerless to stop

Golden- light fled… the moon illuminating the midnight sky
Each star flickered slowly…turning into a plethera of fireflies
Such vivid colours..a rainbow to be sure
A sign sent proving ..that she was in truth pure

Her hips moved to only a rhythm she could hear
Swaying gently, feeling his presence so very near
She raised her left hand and released the hair bows hold
And to her bare-feet, tumbled her locks of spun gold

She shook her hair quickly..never once loosing the beat
Faster and faster, dirt flying forcefully from beneath her feet
Ritual movement took over her body..her soul turned to fire
Her chant intense voice rising higher and higher

“My lover..My lover…I call you its nigh time
Come to me..Join your soul now with mine”
She wanted to reach out to the moon…to beg it to stay
Tears from her eyes falling softly…kissing petals of her bouquet

A dress of white.. reaching just past her knees
Touched the wind.. dancing with the breeze
Suddenly, the thunder became intense..scattering all nearby
She dropped to her knees..raised her face toward the sky

As tears flowed free, jagged streaks of lightning touched the earth
And now came the time for her true-love’s rebirth
But then had it really been so very long ago
That death itself had visited, taking away this man’s soul

A young bride to be a church awaiting her man
Tears cascaded with realization.. she would not see him again
His smile..his eyes..his soul, taken to a land far away
And her heart still remained with him..even on this day

“Please give me my soul back..Let me reclaim my heart!
Stop this ceramony, I wish not to take part!
Take me! Take me now! I need my true love’s kiss
Reunite us as one…joined forever in heavenly bliss”

Perhaps her words were heard, or perhaps magic in the rhythm
Transparent became the heavens.. she could now really see him
He held out his hand, and she reached to the skies
And for her true love..she laid down her young life
