In The Stillness Of The Night

Rating: 4.1

In the stillness of the night,
A faint cry for love is heard.
Echoing far into the distance,
Soaring higher than any bird.

In the stillness of the night,
Under the moonlight shining.
She hears his painful cry,
While alone she is dining.

She starts on a journey,
To seek out his heartfelt cry.
For if she ignores his plea,
He may slowly but surly die.

In the stillness of the night,
As she wanders on her way.
She must find this lost soul,
She can not turn away.

For she is lost as well,
Deep inside she also weeps.
Though she may not know it,
He wanders himself, her soul he seeks.

His cry for love gets louder,
Her cry as well echos out.
In the stillness of the night,
Together they wander about.

As they draw closer,
Their loneliness begins to fade.
For their journey is coming to an end,
From this love that has conveyed.

They come together at last,
Under the midnight sun.
In the stillness of the night,
Two young lovers have begun.

The poem sounds like a legend. LIke all legends there is a deep truth hidden under the story. We can hear the unseen unuttered calling and we start to move and yes, we find. A poem with a touch of magic, a pleasure to read.

This poem is exactly as you explained it, though the explanation is not needed. It adds to it, though in a good way.

a haunting poem. beautiful, I like it very much. The last line of the first stanza. Do you mean the work 'Souring' or Soaring?
