Cassiopeia

What thoughts spin
through a midnight mind
hung with the stars
draped in velvet regret
a beautiful prison
unchanging eternal
all for a careless word
vanity’s prize

Does she dream
from her heavenly perch
of the daughter
who was bound
for the sin of the mother
and rescued by love
of another

In love with herself
with herself she
remains
now watched by a world
she can never attain

    So much rich imagery here Dee..’midnight mind’..fantastic line almost as if she is (perhaps literally) being hung by the stars..not ‘hung with stars’..Jae..hope you are well πŸ™‚
