Ethereal Realm

Under the moonlight
Away from the sun
Lies a special place
Built by only one

The river of life and the wind of death
Flowing in their currents here
As the watchful eye of a girl met
Monitoring everything all around

Wind swirling around her now
Sweeping up her locks like nothing
Showing those eyes its paths
What Fate has in store now

The river's water silent and clear
Full of the hope of new life
Continuality to never fade from the spirit
Babbling patiently along

Up above in the obsidian sky
Floats an entity more wise then even she
The silent silver orb of which she adores
Calming everything in the shadows

Making her soul come alive
And those silver pupils to dance
Revealing what none may dare see
A spirit older then time itself

The rhythm of the night a soothing tone
Scaring off all others of "normal" descent
Playing tunes of soft silence and solitude
Safety and warmth; Bitter cold and sinful dangers

Wisdom and fairness a daunting task to keep up
But for this child-like girl, not so much
Delighted to help and care for those close
Others like herself; The ones left behind by life

Standing in this ethereal realm made by she
Looking up to that starry sky, thoughtful
Tears of hidden pain and shown happiness overflow
A heart beating that hath been torn asunder by Fate

"To wait a bit longer," She says to herself
"Let us wait to see what this future holds..."
For now, this beaten heart under lock and key
Waiting for her key to unlock its potential and happy emotions

While Spherical silver enigmas keep watching
Holding onto the lives of those all around her
Keeping them close and safe
Pray that Armageddon will come a different day....
