The Woman in Black

The woman in black stood
in her raven hair, red lips shining,
her large black purse, 
black glasses and boots.

The woman in black waited
thirty seven minutes 
knowing not what for,
never smiling, only staring.

The woman in black stood
silent by the dead flowers
this day after the 
Hunter’s Moon.

The woman in black apathetic
to a passing world
in clear blue noon sun passing 
between Uranus and time.

The woman on black cried
no lonely regretful tear 
or sad memoir drama
no one would write.

The woman in black walked 
into a black Venus night
when the moon refused to shine,
disappearing into silence.

The woman in black pervades
my mind troubled now forever,
and I fell in love with her,
and I disappeared with her
into that black silence.
