Serenade

Come, read my serenade for love…

serenade
The waxing and the waning
of my beautiful moon
spreading that
warm soothing beautiful
moonlight
which calms my devils
and heals my sores
from within
 

The ethereal
timeless beauty
you adorn
you keep changing
from the crescent
to the gibbous
keeps playing
with my heart
Oh! so chivalrous

You bring out desires
hidden in me
that ravenous appetite
deep seeded
for centuries

That flicker of the beauty
can heal a thousand blisters
I’m chasing you for centuries
named as a shapeshifter

A constant turmoil
of good and bad
within my soul
it’s a timeless fight
and now it’s taking a toll

You are up there in the heart of sky
shining in all your glory
the blood in my eyes
turns pale
in that sapphire light
shining in all that reverie

I wrap my pain and love
and wrote a beautiful serenade
dipped in my sinful blood
Alas, but all you could hear;
was the werewolf’s
howls in the night
too harsh and coarse
for anyone to bear.

–Megha

  1. Oh, I love this, and I really love how you called the moon yours. Isn’t it true, the moon belongs to each of us and we all connect with it differently. Just so inspired by the passion in your words here. i could feel the pull of that moon on your poetry like it was reaching into your soul and pulling the words from deep within. Awesome!

      1. You really nailed it! Kudos! And you are welcome but it’s the only way I can read your poetry. It has such depth of passion and emotion that I have to consume it like cold water on a hot day – slowly to allow each word to nourish the soul.
