Moon (Lies) Light


I loved you {once}
But a long timed ago ¿
When moonlighted flood
awashed our naked bodies
Lying so still in affinity

No moonlight now
no longer seventeen ****
Looking back it's all just impossible
a longing sweetened dream

Stand up, walking to the opened window
Looking out, into the {heart} of midnight
Feeling, reliving, lost eternities
Oh! Bye and by as I longingly sigh (!)

Wishing emptiness would last forever
In the emptiness of the [Soul] of Midnight
No expectations or derivations
Midnight sheds her skin
Burned by moonlight's callous lies

    The memory of broken love never heals, time heals all wounds only if your stoned on codeine. Great stuff painful and great. I will never mention the moon and you again (Report) Reply

    Oh wow; pretty incredible
    Significance of your past loss really brought out; disappointment, lost opportunity impossible dream lost eternities
    Shakes me to chase after love and opportunity and treasure it as it may one day be no more! (Report) Reply

    A quite haunting piece that is emotionally descriptive of the mystery of the essence of moonlight mixed with life. (Report) Reply

    Moonlight can be a cold experience, but soon dawn will arrive and the sun's glowing embers with soon shine bright into a sunny day. We never know what is around the next corner. (Report) Reply

    Bath me now with truth
    Shed my sinful skin with true light
    Wake me up and place my soul right
    Happened to my heart to restart
    I was fooled to believe Moonlight
    Here i am cant escape my sight
    To dream a land on you, moon bright_Soul (Report) Reply
