Night Mistress

February 21, 2019

She came to the light,
Searching for answers.
For years, she checked
Every temple and shrine
Looking for the one
Who saved her soul.

To her surprise,
It wasn’t the light that
Answered her call but
Instead shadow itself.
Cloaked in darkness,
A voice like ink spoke:
“Little bird,” it said,
“The void speaks, and
It knows your name.”

“Why me?” she asked,
Her frustration obvious.
“I saw you as you were,
And I see what you’ll be.
You may yet be useful,”
The darkness replied.

While she left with
More questions, her
Heart was not weary;
To know she one of
Such limitless power
On her side gave her
Some semblance of
Peace.
