LOVER'S MOON

The moon tonight is full,
It lulls me towards the sky.
A subliminal pull,
An effervescent sigh.

A lovely, lunar spectacle,
She watches over me.
In her I'm never played the fool
Or feigned so shamelessly.

If I could only fly to her,
Might the torment subside?
Why do my thoughts all seem to blur -
When the pain just won't hide?

A razor tease across my chest -
Reminds me of my worth.
While every word befalls the test -
Of fabricated birth.

‘Tis not the coldness of the blade -
On a soul soon to die.
‘Tis but a simple promise made -
That turned into a lie.

All in the echo of a name -
I trusted way to soon.
I sacrifice my heart to shame -
Beneath the lover's moon.

------------------
Michael Anderson


And so, being young and dipt in folly
I fell in love with melancholy,
But dreams - of those who dream as I,
Aspiringly, are damned, and die:

We blame ourselves so easily... when all too often the shame belongs to the one who caused us pain. Beautiful and sad, Michael!

Michael, Michael, Michael........I shine on you from up above, but maybe it's not far enough...If I have brought you shame or pain in any way, then I have failed, and should just "fall"..............

Again your poetry leaves me speachless. Very well written.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for awhile and leave footprints in our heart and we are never ever the same.

Thank you all for leaving footprints!!

Michael you know I find humor in much of what you write. I know, my sense of humor is as skewed as my perspective. Point being that love lightens even our moods. Love brings both misery and joy in equal measure and that paradox delights me no end. It surprises even me to say that I'm glad to see love touching these forums. I doubt it will strike a worldwide trend but it's nice to see and feel anyway. Sorry to rant in your space.

For those that feel our Dark edge has brightened too much, I invite them to peek into Dark forum to see our latest works.

Now and forever my heart hears ~one voice~.

Excellent, just one question I’m still new to writing would you explain the- at the end of the line, does it mean pause, hold, take a breath etc;

UK Hero,
The (-) I use at the end of a line is quite unneeded, an archaic usage of the hyphen, simply meaning the thought of the current line is continued on the next line. Didn't mean to confuse you, just a style I long ago adapted and have not let down.

Michael
