Among the fireflies

lies a woman waiting ablazed

with her passion to love.

Like a Venus in her shell,

where nocturnal creatures lay

witness to her secret rendezvous.

She hums a melody

dispersing fear, hoping

for her knight to come.

But the knight will not come,

she knows.

She wanders. She dreams.

Of some galant prince

from a faraway kingdom 

to take her away.

Of fairy godmothers

bestowing charm.

Of Cassiopea sitting in the sky

leading her to find.

A soulmate.

And out there

on the moonless night

she had her heart,

open wide. But only

the wolves and the owls will hear

her beseeching voices.

Imploring a knight

to touch her nakedness

among the stars.
