Demon Moon


The moonlight casts a spell on your face
Is this sorcery, or saving grace?
It ripples through me,
through bones and sinews
nudging me at the edge of sanity.

Behold the fiery glare of the Demon in your eyes
I'm petrified, I'm bewitched, I'm terrified
by your flawless splendour,
your Devilish allure
I witness before me.

I am ever so timid, ever so cautious
to caress, to embrace
the Demon Moon upon your face
Blazing lust and fury
as your glance penetrates me

The piercing silence aches
with dire straits of temptation
My heart thrashes ceaselessly
I dare no more, and I close my eyes
to shield me from such perfection.

Suddenly
Our lips meet
I die and live again
The spell is lifted.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Sometimes love can be nerve wracking. Even the bravest, most courageous of all men cannot help but be mesmerized; trembling under the deadly allure of the fairer sex. This is my account of a kiss in the moonlight. I hope to depict this moment of 'madness' with the lack of structural rhyme.

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
