In the Moonlight

A collaboration between me and my talented fellow writer. Playing the juxtaposition of light and darkness.

in the moons soft light
vision is a satin veil
softening that view
heavenly clouds lend their glow
worlds moved by imagination

Growing, it is growing, the night,
Dark embers light the countless shadows,
Life then fills this distant memory,
Moonlight couldn’t feel those weeping eyes,
For its kiss found no illuminated world.

that dark night broadens
as the full moon falls down low
gathering its pain
darkness smothering the light
love illuminates that gloom

See the two lips of broken wishes,
Standing below a million eyes and a legacy,
Written pages left blank by tears,
Their story lost in this broadened dark night,
What illuminated the moon never found them.

love light not destined
to fall fortunately there
left in the shadows
of a regretful eclipse
though hope is never forlorn

This love unreplaced, this night, unguided,
Hands reach out for the glow,
This is a night of drunken dreams,
Drunken, in the streaming sorrow of that moon,
Fireworks inside you see this night never end.
