Call of the night...A poem

Do you hear the call of the night?

Can you find a way?

Does the appeal of the moon entice

To turn from the light of day

.

To leave what you love behind

Can you say farewell

To follow me love blind

knowing your life i will dispel

.

I will hold you close to my breast

I will soothe your fear

My love, my heart my conquest

Making your path to me clear

.

Come the gentle twilight

We will rise together

Where the night awaits filled with delight

Our hearts and minds bonded forever

.

Listen to the call of the night

And step out of the light with me

Let the power of the moon excite

Our love eternal was meant to be.

What a beautiful poem. Couples should say it to each other before they get married or better still, say it together after their vows.

Very interesting. powerful, thought-provoking piece...my favorite lines are your opening verse, "Do you hear the call of the night? Can you find a way? Does the appeal of the moon entice To turn from the light of day".

There is but a hint of darkness to this poem that lingers on the edge...well done!

Beautiful poem! To step into a new love, is truly like stepping into the dark. Perhaps you will not see another sunrise ;)

.....yes it took me to another world - another time - another place ....... a very rare gift when a writer can do that to me - to be able to transport your reader and you are unaware of the space you're in but it pulls you in just the same because there is something poetic-magnetic about these words .........

..That is one of the best things an aspiring poet can hear, to know that my writing is being read and even more importantly enjoyed is an honor and a thrill.

Thank you for your wonderfully kind words it means a lot to me :)
