Empty Answers

At a window that was forever the night
she sang from the emptiness
that knew her heart's deepest longing.
Starlight accepted her questioning
and wiped her silver tears
when moonlight found her grief.

Even if she counted the stars
there'd not be enough reason to hold her questions,
nor enough pain to hold the loss inside.
If indifference could hold her tight
they why did she reach out
for the child she knew she'd never touch again?

About Christina Anne Hawthorne

Alive and well in the Rocky Mountains. I'm a fantasy writer who also dabbles in poetry, short stories, and map making. My Ontyre tales are an alternative fantasy experience, the stories rich in mystery, adventure, and romance. Alternative fantasy? Not quite steampunk. Not quite gothic. In truth, the real magic is in those who discover what's within.
