After Dark

I stalk the night on midnight heels,
creating sparks, a river of stars
illuminated in flashing neon.
In the back street world,
where I am queen
and the night
goes on
forever.


Written for the thursday think tank prompt #58 night time

DAMN! I need a pair of those shoes. Of course, my arthritic feet may create a different result. ;-)

Susannah said...

LOL, Kim! I love your comment. ;-)

Good to see you. x

This is lovely, Susannah. Reminds me of a wonderful dream life I used to spend a lot of time in as a child. Couldn't wait to go to sleep. :-)

Hoe did you manage to make Queen of the Night sound so sexy - and sparkling with it?! LOL Delightful picture you drew...

Kerry O'Connor said...

Oh yes, the midnight heels are inspired. I imagine this to be the personification of the night itself, in the form of a uber-sexy woman.

"a river of stars".....so lovely.

I have to agree with Kim, I also want a pair of shoes like that! I'd also love to have your ability to stick to a meter this way! In awe, completely and utterly! Brilliant!
