The Pain of Desire Il dolore del desiderio Rhyming Version

The waning moon is like a shadow on my heart
Consumed by darkness ever since we’ve been apart
My soul is weak
My flesh it speaks
Desire flaming
Ever since we’ve been apart

So I am longing, for our tender moons return
Reunited, two hearts will burn

Without her, there is barren hunger, nothing more
An empty wasteland, with no moonlight as before
She turns away
My soul decays
What use is longing
When her moon can’t hear my song

    I love your poem: it's passionate, tender, melancholic and full of desire. I hope you will get her back, David. I feel the profound sadness in your lines. Don't give up...until you see, " Our tender moons return united, two hearts will burn. " Thanks for sharing your amazing poem. I wish you success in your writing endeavors. Have a wonderful Sunday. Peace and Love, Andrew.
