Raining stars

I’m drenched in darkness

Far East and far west

but this is when my beauty

is at its absolute best.

Clad in a black gown

I’m adorned with diamonds rare

so many, but intricate

perfectly placed with care.

My robe carries a tail

later to be seen

this is my legacy

and has always been.

As dark as I am

the legacy’s bright and bold

my story can be enchanting

or set you on a cold.

But I am still in blacks

haven’t let go of gems yet

the chariot’s here to take me

my beauty’s to be met.

Dressed in this elegance

as I enter the hall

predictions say my diamonds

are about to make a fall.

Profoundly circumstantial

as my diamonds set to flight

people wish upon them

for I’m a meteor shower night!

      Thank you so very much. You have pulled out all these old poems of mine and they were my favourites. Peace and greetings from Sui generis šŸ’›

      1. You are welcome! I always like to go back through and look at ‘old stuff’ because I know there are treasures often hidden away in time.

        That is so true. No? Old stuff always brings out certain emotions which are very difficult to see otherwise. Treasuring it!

    There is so much to unpack here and subconscious topics that flower up as seemingly dark words that i cannot fully extract full meaning (I still think meaning is subjectively objective same as beauty is objectively subjective – distorting complexity leading to migraine but hey i do like my contorted continental philosophers). Legacy is legacy but you are obviously making a great effort in terms of self-acceptance, and Others are doing that too, I am really proud! Those that really matter and that are truthful to your darkness and gems will still pick you in that chariot. I think you should take it. Don’t regret. šŸ™‚
