On the Edge of a Dream

He was once the sun of her sky
And she, a star from a universe he esteemed
But their star crossed love went awry
Eclipsed by the traverse of moonbeams
A dark moon rising, on the edge of a dream

    Very nice Joseph, makes me want to join She was the heaven, in his eyes And he, the grail cup of her dream Two hearts whispering goodbyes Two crickets losing their glow gleam He lost his passion and she, her sheen.

    hey, I see you were inspired by this title too, on the edge of a dream. I love how you made it into a dark moon rising. I think you are really getting into the 5 line poems.
