Queen in Black ~ poem by Dionle Ariba

Fashion in the eyes of humanity,

Behold a great sovereign,

With a long black gown of despondency,

Smirking black lips of hatred,

The dim and dark aura on her shoulders rested,

Haunting black eyes of arrogance,

Sauntering in an aisle of gloom and silence,

Long dark hair with black ribbons,

Reaching the height of power over the souls of men

A dazzling necklace made out of a black diamond,

Black pearl earrings attract the shadows of despair,

Crown of Sorrow made out of black onyx,

With a murder of crows drifting above,

Heels of desperation so tall and magnificent,

Desires of darkness,

Fulfilled and obtained by misery,

Through the heights of Fashion,

Entirely carved for a great monarch,

The Queen in Black.
