Mist (poem)

The moon was full the sea was calm that night

And somewhere in an old familiar mist

Whose mystery helped heighten mere delight

A couple met their moment as they kissed


They held her close and searched within her eyes

For something that was lost so long ago

She felt the other lover in disguise

Another time and place she used to know


They whispered words of love into her ear

But one was false the other still rang true

Within the mist her heart could see quite clear

She wondered what a kiss right now could do


And so they kissed until the ebb of dawn

But when the mist had cleared the girl had gone

My apology. My comment above is meant for Mhatter99 (the author). I'm not sure why I've put down FaithReaper--jetlagged maybe or just a big fan of Faith?
