walked outside the hovel
into the shine of a rich full moon
I stood there
allowing its shine
to engulf me absolutely
’ere I raised my eyes
up toward its magnificence
where it lay like a stone within my heart
for I love someone
who will never return to me
as it used to be
a spirited and self-assured love, she
the beautiful full moon
mocks me
relaying to me my blame
eh . . . and it is right
still, within my heart she shall
always remain
n’er to be pushed away
I visit her kisses
in the midnight hour
oh, imaginary is so delightful
still my nucleus remains unfulfilled
never shall I find
peace within

Thank you, Blues. Yeah, you're right, along with the sweetness of the memories comes the despair and regret.

Profound statement JerryPat. Is the peace you seek a settlement for the loss of love? Could be it's on the outside, or nowhere...until you create it.

Heavy thoughts well expressed. Isn't that the half of it?

Aw Blusey, I was just caught up in a moments  feeling of nostalgia. They poem was its result. You said, "Isn't that the half of it?" and I say . . . Yes!

Maybe that lovely moon wasn't mocking you Jerrypat but reflecting your good nature. Sometimes I think the glow of the moon can see me better than some people! Don't you? Great poem though!

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

Awww, Stacy I know you have a good point and that the moon reflects our goodness for the most of us. Still . . . there are the other times. Thank you for giving me a read and commenting so vibrantly.

Yes Lori, if I write "beautiful words time and time again," it is because she is beautiful. Thank you dearly for your input.

Yes, of course James, the moon is put there for us to enjoy, among other things.

Very good poem JerryPat2. I feel the moon is so mellow to observe too, no matter the mood. The sun just toasts your retinas.

One ladle serves the soup that feeds the mouths of the many.

A true poet is by me found
A poet who loves Nature
He must be a real genius
His heart is a merciful one
A lovely description is made
I have located a marvelous poet.
