Beneath a Milky Moon

Then:


Desire enveloped us,
stoking fierce passions,
beneath a milky moon,

your abandoned kisses,
left me breathless,
under a starlit sky,

love silenced our nights,
a serene peace settling,
filling empty desolation,

at rest at long last,
your presence my final abode,
each caress rich with hope. 


Now:


your absence is felt,
each day, every night,
throttling my dreams,

crawling inside a void,
my crumbling heart weary,
knowing you may never return,

all promises lay strewn,
like quiet wilting flowers,
brushing against my thoughts,

defeated by your love,
my tortured breathing,
is shallow, agonising, slow,

each memory a jagged ache,
knowing you left,
a thousand moons ago.

    Hi, it’s a wonderful feeling to click on a poem and find such a refreshing write. You’ve tackled the theme with an honest shrewdness that is highly welcome. Love gained and love lost - that seems to be the facet of life. Very well penned! I’m certainly looking forward to read more of your work. Vicky.

    Hello there Vicky, and thank you very, very much for your warm and kind and generous words! Yes indeed, as you say, love gained and love lost are certainly feelings many of us can relate to. Thank you once more, for your encouraging words, and have a wonderful week! :-)
