What I Never Saw Before. - Poem by Dean Koopman

Who are you?

I remember the night I first saw you
I realised that you were always there but I never recognised you for who you were.

You would always watch over me
Comfort me when the light would torment me
But that night
I watched you pry past the darkness
To reveal yourself
As if you'd had enough of my ignorance
As if you finally decided to prove to me what you needed not
To show the life that you have.

You enthralled me
Created a perspective that had not previously existed in my mind
You changed the way I saw you
Simply because you wanted to.

You fought your way past the veil for less than a minute as if you knew I was watching
waiting.

It was my birthday
And I went home empty handed That night.

And you decided to change me
I felt different after those few moments.

I watched you reveal yourself peace by peace
Dragging out time until finally
I saw you

You made me happy but I've never been so simultaneously sad
So I ask again…

Who are you, Luna?

    Moon poems are always full of beauty and mystery - you should work over this poem a bit though. To be sure these lines are constructed nicely and there are no grammar mistakes. I'm always ready to help if needed. Don't give up! (Report) Reply
