The Mystery Of The Moonlight

As lovers walk hand in hand, with each step their world becomes smaller under the moonlight
Cocooned in their embrace, lips on lips trace, as passion takes hold, under the moonlight  

At midnight, the tormented soul begins his pain the full moon sees his change
grisly slobber drips off mange, his deeds of horror will unfold under the moonlight

The nightingale sings, high in the serenity of darkened branches, for his mate pursued 
he sings in his solitude, so sweetly and invitingly to offer his love untold under the moonlight

In a velvet sky, the unknown sends comets gliding, now make a wish, for whoever sees, 
these fiery tails have dreamed of happiness  to appease and to behold, under the moonlight

Darkness shrouds the night, evil lurks in dank corners of lampless minds, choosing not to
keep the light they own, but sit beside the devils thrown where souls are sold under the 

Outside I walk to clear my head, thoughts of what, in this ghazal should be said, to have a 
chance of a prize, to hopefully hypnotize, times running out and its cold under the moonlight  

For JP's Ghazal contest

    Their are so many things that happens at night, the moon has a magic all its own. This was a wonderful poem and I really loved all the vivid scenes you painted with this poem. I loved the last two lines! Excellent poem.

    Sincere congratulations on this winning entry in the Ghazal contest! I find Ghazals so difficult to write, and you did such a fantastic job. Well done. Chris.

    You know, I really don't know a lot about different forms of poetry, and am limited in my exposure to poetry, to be honest with you. But I LOVE this! Tony

    I think this poem is spectacular! I love all the different 'moon-stage' imagery in each stanza....very nicely detailed imagery too. I think hypnotize is spelled with a z, instead of an s--but hypnotism is with an s? Not trying to be rude, only want to help you in the contest; just in case JP is a stickler for spelling. Love this poem. Chris.
