I saw you once in silent light
Beneath the moon up in the night
As shadows danced amongst the oak trees
I saw your face and fell to my knees
I watched with eyes as wide as coins
As you undressed from in your loins
And saw your body lithely move
In silence I sat and approve
Yet how I longed to feel your meek touch
Inside the confines I loath so much
Yet I held my tongue and never spoke
I didnít want to be a cruel joke
So please donít say I never tried
For you donít know the times I cried


speak the riddle within the mind you dwell in
stare long and hard at the shadow from within
feel the rhythm of your heart and dance
let your body sway as though you have no chance
sing the songs you never thought you'd sing
live the joys you never thought you'd bring
as the world begins the last chorus today
and smile for the things you just threw away...



 shine a light so bright that all can see
and you will find the joys that echo within me

Interesting thoughts, des. I can't say that I understand it all but I enjoyed how the words made me feel!   (hey, I never said I was bright!)

Very interesting work here, Des, as usual.
You meter is right on. flows very well.
I love the second stanza (poem)the last two lines really kick where it hurts.
