I don’t remember what fantasy book I was reading at the time I wrote this, but this poem was inspired by whatever that book was. This was written in 2005.
The Ladies of the Night
They appear out of the mist,
Cloaks of night shroud them,
Long black dresses of darkness cover them–giving form to their shapes,
Eyes glow golden, hair is coal black with blue shimmers,
Walking silently on the wooded ground, mist covering the earth, they haunt our dreams–ghosts of dark beauty passing through the dark mist,
Ladies of the Night, come forth–show us your dark beauty.
