LUNA



Neath midnight blue, the crescent moon hangs low
Complicit confidante, she knows my heart
This lovers’ bench we shared so long ago
Her and us, taking oath we’d never part

Still the perfumes of rose garden linger
While hovers aura of lavish thickness
He slipped a diamond ring on my finger
All the while watching, she was a witness 

Luna, you saw my heart in two he broke
You’re the one friend I trust implicitly
How does sublime love just go up in smoke
And newfound wings take flight exquisitely

Thwarted, shattered, most fervently I plea
I couldn’t bear should you too abandon me

This poem is very touching, Line, even more so when considering that (correct me if I'm wrong) it is mainly based on true life experiences. The end couplet left me all emotional. ~ Congrats on your fine win. Regards // paul

This sounds like a Coleridge Sonnet, which is the highest compliment I know Line.
