Mab the Dark Mistress

Selene from Underworld

Partner to the King
Yet refuses to be Queen
Preferring shadows
And a land of monsters
To the light of day
A burglar to the bone
Stealing and sneaking
Claiming all she can
Becoming the richest being
That nobody has heard of
Churning emotions
For a love once damaged
Yet never fully dead
Distance keeps her safe
While her heart pushes for more
What role can she play?
As she seeks a past
That might never return
The times of freedom
Have been consumed by purpose

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Very descriptive, but sad in some ways. She’s her own boss, yet she yearns for what she thinks she can’t have.


  2. I enjoyed this poem, Charles


  3. Wow, Charles, I love how this captures her spirit and tells her life story in so few words.
