dam moon, i Love you




...

he stood at the door of my soul
not able to knock
but unwilling to leave
a paper poem nervously held his heart together

i watched him
til the moon fell down
and then when the sun stood up
i thought he would walk away

so i did my part
and opened the door
he tried to capture me with his eyes
as i caught him with the scent of my skin

i was his, i was his moonblossom
crushed by the tenderness of his hands
only he hadnt realized
just how hard he had loved me

we held eachother tight
like a statue painted with flesh
and when the sunrays stopped
so did we

and... now when i daydream
i fill my mind with the moon
to wrap myself in a memory
i forgot to never remember

...

  7. I like the poem and am captivated by the connected art. It adds an aggression to the whole interaction.
