Radiant Night

by Santiago

Oh Queen of Darkness, hearken to my plea,
Embrace me in the folds of endless night.
Bind me within eternal ecstasy,
Illuminated by your eyes' moonlight.
Soft yielding ivory flesh cushions me;
Deep crimson flames upon your lips do dance.
Your radiance blinds me so I can't see,
Locks me within a mesmerizing trance.
Enfolded by your sweet black waves of hair,
I drift until the coming of the day.
Such separation is too much to bear;
How can words such sheer agony convey?
Alas, our time tonight will soon be done,
For you wane with the rising of the sun.
