Tonight


Tonight,
I wanna drink
necter dripping
from the quarter
of the growing
moon...........
Hush!
Let me lie
on my back
under the forest-moon
alone, alone, alone.


Alone alone alone alone alone
alone alone alone alone alone


No star will be there
with the moon,
no milky ways.
I'll nibble the
solid rays
soaking it in my
desire.
Won't listen to
any music,
but the chorus
of the crickets...

Alone alone alone alone alone
alone alone alone alone alone!

    Hello Madam, another lovely piece, especially loved the line I'll nibble the solid rays soaking it in my desire. The irony of you wanting to soak rays (the rays that literally soak you) is remarkably beautiful. :) (Report) Reply

Our life is twofold; Sleep hath its own world,
A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
