Moonbeams’ Dance (poem)

Moonbeams thrilled the dark and bitter night

A scent foreboding slithered in some corner

Unresting fears filled mirror of my soul

My tortured tears expressed my loneliness


Bleak silence broke as tears fell on the ground

For from some distance rose a long lost sound

Refreshing drink in world that now abounds


But emptiness made heartbeats know it’s there

By airing shattered shadows of a past

A moment’s spell from nothing long ago


And from these shadows suddenly appeared

That person who my life had once endeared

And stood beside me till our troubles cleared

Yet from our fullness days would soon be sheered


There from those tears rich music would enhance

As once again this captivating trance

Invited me to hold her in a dance

And drift with her to moments we would chance


Oh moonbeams take this challenge from my sight

Take from me from this test of deepest reason

Even the teardrops can’t be trusted

How long will this last echoed forever

I like the change in rhythm introduced in the fourth paragraph. Also, the strong emotions are very much appreciated. However, the last three lines seem to trouble me. Maybe it would be clearer if you added a comma on the last line. But then, you are the poet so you should say it as you see it.
