Powerless

I look for your magic in the moonlight
Listening for the secrets you will tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I do not know if it is wrong or right
You leave me powerless under your spell
I look for your magic in the moonlight

Take control of me I do not wish to fight
You even mesmorize me with your smell 
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

I wish to fly on your string like a kite
Tethered to you I am secure and well
I look for your magic in the moonlight

So I travel with you into the night
Nothing compares to the stories you tell
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

You my lover with your eyes shining bright
You lifted me up whenever I fell
I look for your magic in the moonlight
I wish for you to be my dream tonight

Anne's favorite poetry form contest.
Be gentle Anne it is my first time trying this form.

    Richard I think this is lovely......I do not understand any of these complicated forms...I leave them to you grand masters......I just adore reading them....Donna

    I am just a beginner when it comes to these new forms. I am just diving in and hoping for the best. Thanks for commenting.
  1. Date: 3/29/2013 5:26:00 PM

    YES! You did a phenomenal job with this write my friend! I am impressed with the turnaround you've had from your first attempt to this one! This one sings of magnificence Richard! What a lovely piece, Great Work!!

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 3/29/2013 5:57:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thanks Russell it was made possible by your feedback
  1. Date: 3/29/2013 4:26:00 PM

    You are very close to the form Richard! I believe the form goes along like this...A1 b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 A2 where the 'A1' and 'A2' lines repeat throughout the poem, and there are the rhyming 'a' lines, and 'b' lines! I know, it's complicated, that's why not many people do this form! However if it is done just right this form can truly shine! Of course what you have written here is very good, just not true to form! I hope I hadn't offended you with my review! Smile!

    Lamoureux Avatar Richard Lamoureux Date: 3/29/2013 4:51:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    No as I stated this is my first attempt so feedback is appreciated. Have a good night Russell
