The Night Was

Last weekend was fairly hectic for me, so I’m only now catching up on the last Christian Indie Writers’ Podcast prompt. Just in time to do tomorrow’s, tomorrow!

I wasn’t feeling anything from the prompt (The night was…) for my ongoing Snow White story, so I broke with tradition and wrote a poem instead. But I stayed under 15 minutes this time!


The Night Was

The night was dark
Mysterious
Dramatic
And full of fear and failure
And memories of pain
Of wrongs long-festering
Of cries and wails
And aches
And trauma

The night was
Harm
And hate
And feeling small
Alone and uncertain of anything

The night was so many things
In the space before you were
But now you’re here
With infinite light and love

And the night is
Magic
