Brilliant Light

sunrise7161 (2)

No more living in shadow’s fury

 

Memory pulverized by delicate hands

reaching to hold times gone by

 

Once brilliant blooms fade as satin rosehips

crackle and burn over the sun’s relentless touch

 

No more justifying a masquerade

 

A fusillade launched by enemies feigning innocence

fastens bloodlines to destiny gone wrong

 

With ice in her heart, she responds

giddy in new found freedom

 

No, no more

 

Arms akimbo, her stance is firm

Power looms over the sun still rising

 

Threats of dangerous retribution dissipate

Hers is a brilliant light
