I am a night blooming flower

I revel in my ebony domain

surrounded by the whispers

of the ocean of darkness

and the creatures of night

that cannot compete

with the glorious sight

of my soft ivory petals

that rival the light

of the shimmering moon

or my nocturnal waltz

with the wandering wind

and the ghosts that linger

in this desolate place

that always remind me

of why it is the light

I cannot face
