Foolish The Heart. - Poem by Fay Slimm

Beware of pale moonlight, it takes no note.
White rays lull common-sense to deepest sleep.
Its ever constant magic is potent,
Changing lines of love to lust repeatedly.

Both give strong and similar sensation,
So the mind forgets to ask why and what
Is the truth of moonlight fascination.
Choice is lost when lips meet and blood runs hot.

Heart can foolishly lose control, and then
Disclaim the moon has mislead yet again.

    Such a lyrical little poem with a subject that has tempted poets for thousands of years. Your final couplet is particularly eloquent. You have a natural and most attractive 'way' with words. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    Its that lusty moon that is to blame
    moonbeams drive a man insane
    well, that and a curvy sort of girl
    round whose fingers i would curl (Report) Reply
