Blame It On the Moon

I dare you to say,
"It's because of the full moon."
My heart is not made of iron.
No magnetism 
Pulls me like the ocean's tide,
Holding me here by your side.

Instead, please tell me
That our hearts will beat as one
Regardless of the moon or sun.
Say that you'll be here
When we become old and gray...
Then, say the moon made us that way.

    gotta come back and fave it. It reminds me of something a classic romanticist poet would have written.

    Ray, there really is a romantic quality when lovers watch a full moon together. I'd like to think that the romance remains when they "become old and gray." Love that last line! So nice to read your work again. Congratulations on your win in Russell's contest. Love, Carolyn
