When Moonlight Falls

I have been sorting through my accumulated clutter, and found this poem which I wrote when I was around nineteen. Oh the days.

When Moonlight Falls

When moonlight falls upon
the garden's shore,
And no slumber can deny
its insistent beams,
She comes, unbidden, 
through locked door.
Wandering purposely 
through his drifting dreams.

She has been present in
every dream he's dreamt,
Invoking a union 
of the mind.
An age of nights, whilst 
sound he slept,
He has lived a life
that transcends time.

    • She rapping rapping at his locked door ๐Ÿ™‚
      Poe-I’m flattered. But it was back in those halcyon days when I was still a teenager. Spots and angst. Alcohol and disappointments. Those were the days ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, thank you.

  1. Ahh! I had to read this multiple times, it’s a really lovely poem!
    You’ve always been one for potent endings I see, and I adore ‘He has lived a life that transcends time’. As a bearer of recurring dreams, I can empathise with this poem also.
    I’ll be 19 on Saturday, I think I’ll have to somehow ‘up’ my poetry game after reading this one. ๐Ÿ˜‰


    • You’ve always said that about my endings, haven’t you? ๐Ÿ™‚
      PJ you present as much older than what you are. Your writing is the real deal-and time is on your side to develop it too. Mucho envy!
