 DARK LOVER (Sestina)


~Dark Lover~

This is a hell of a tale
Veiled mysteriously in black
In a night covered all of white
When slowly was dying the night
Extracting remnants of the day
And creating into another one life

There she was full of life
In this sad and moving tale
I'm to tell you about this day
When her world became all black
When she dreamt of love at night
With dreams purer than snow white

When her world was covered of white
And to her was precious life
It was just like this very night
When was weaved this tale
Some say her world turned black
Just as her life was marked by day

You could see her every day
Sitting by the sea dressed in white
When the day started to turn black
And around her all that has life
Began to spin quickly this love tale
Switching daylight by turning the night

Her lover always accompanied her at night
But nobody ever saw him during the day
People started to talk and fabricate tale
Paled as she dressed all of white
All of sudden seemed lacking life
Moonlight glowing on her hair so black

His shadowy figure attired in black
Ebony cape as black as the ivory night
Started to descend materializing life
Forever hiding sunlight every single day
From his pristine eyes her soul as white
With the harsh reality ending this fairy tale

Turning her world black every single day
And every night and thus making her white
Romance of a lifetime into a horrifying tale.
