The Winter Princess

Fields of ice and winter’s touch,

Where darkness kisses light in semi-permanent dusk;

You venture not far from here, you dare not.

Blue eyes cast to an unknown horizon

And hopes of he who forsook you.

A body that feels no chill

Shivers, wrapped in his memory,

This princess of wolves; you huddle against the Arctic storms

Fingers embedded in the fur of a friend,

Your only friend.

And you dream

There is an illusion of the woman you would be,

A transitory memory never destined to exist,

Waiting, always waiting for that dream to manifest,

To coalesce from the darkness to a deeper night: a saviour.

You, the child of the evening star,

And he who is darker than night:

Is it destiny or design?

Keep waiting, Aurora, hold on,

For all storms must pass before The End.

Inspired by the character Princess Aurora from Hunter Hunted (The Eternals Book2)
