An Empty Soul

A black night, a silver moon,
A sense of danger, a feeling of doom.

A pool of water, a reflection,
A mirror, a painful recollection.

A white gown, a dark cloak,
A forest, a dimly lit smoke.

A pale face, a far-away look,
A lost love, a world that was shook.

An empty soul, an empty mind,
Another love, she'll never find.

    Love the meter of your poem and the imagery. Wasn't sure of your intended word in line four. Was it recollection? Also line six "sloak" was that to be oak? Other than those two cryptic words I liked your poem. Good job.
