Dying in the Moonlight

My mind wanders tonight.
To the familiar place
Beyond the trees
Where we held each other
For the first time.

I sank so deeply into
Your arms that night,
That I became addicted to
The sound of your
Heartbeat.
Intoxicated by the
Rhythm of it.
Entranced by Magick in it.
I felt like I was dying in the moonlight,
Only to live in your shine.

You broke through
My defenses
And found the lost
Child within me.
Led me through the
Darkness and back into
The land of the living.

I was a mere shadow
Before you kissed me.
A living ghost haunting the ruins
Of my old life.
But you took my hand,
Warmed my cold cheek,
And gave me a reason
To breathe again.

My love,
You are a taste of Heaven,
The salvation I seek,
Because I’ve been in Hell too
Long,
And I long to be set
Free.

So tonight,
When I look up
At the stars and sway
To the music of our hidden
Sanctuary,
I’ll think of you and how
We danced till dawn,
In the way that lovers do.

I’ll think of how
Our souls became one,
That long October evening.
When the madness of the
World didn’t matter,
If only for just a little while.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
