Be my Moonlight

It’s lonely out today,
My heart is cloaked in gray,
And friends I thought would say,
“Hello”- have passed me by.

It’s lonely out today,
As way leads onto way,
Like stars, the woman play-
With comets in the sky.

It’s lonely out tonight,
Just I and lucid light,
Which flutters like a kite,
Above a gale of dreams.

It’s lonely out tonight,
Yet hope be my moonlight-
Oh! Such a skyborn sight...
Ablaze with silver beams

And let love be the Sun,
From where the moonlight come,
So dreams and love eclipse,
To form your skyborn wish.

It’s lonely out today,
As way leads onto Way,
Just I and lucid light,
Oh hope, be my moonlight

  • quercus : I've never got paid for my hits... (12/15/2009 12:54:00 AM)

    Nice write, but I find it's theme a bit annoying: why didn't you stop them to say 'hello'? Sometimes people might be in a hurry, or have too many things on their head to look who's on the street in front of them and simply don't notice and that is a different thing from ignoring...

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
