Lunar Torment

Tonight I allow you to take me
For I can no longer resist
Desire out-weighs common senses
Wrap me in your ocean of mist

Tonight I need more than a promise
Whispered through my window-pane
Tomorrow gleams on the horizon
Oh, let not this night pass in vain

Tonight you spread over my being
Translucent; you taunt, I beseech
But all I can hear is you breathing
In oceans that I cannot reach

J~

I had all the lights turned out.
I was going to bed...
and then I looked out through my bedroom window at the sky!
I ignored the clock and went outside...heaven like this waits for no one
and morning can steal it away!

I love the romance of your poem
The allure and attraction
So beautiful

Janet said...

Brad, Your poem is beautiful!

HA, yes, I am...isn't it a grand way to live?

Ella, I have read your poem at least four times! You waited to write 'the moon' until she gifted you the perfect words!

Stunning! "oceans I cannot reach" really struck me.

Janet said...

Kat and Sherry, thank-you so much!

Yes the last two lines are magnificent and really give this great poem an ending to remember.
