Sobering up to reality.......

Just what is this madness .....
that shifts the moving stars of night
Laying claim to the wastelands
gives the raptors reason for flight

It's transient colors tint the edges of life itself
then disappears way too soon
Glances off time like only echoes can
raising the dust of it's many moons

Moved by the lunar tides of power even oceans
give way to her touch
I'm not so sure that one word can
explain why or just how much

Okay .....now I'll tell you it's just a
magnetic force to evil to be reckoned
Or wait ......perhaps the most awesome affliction
that nature ever beckoned

Its may be here in fact.....Now .......shaking you
to your inner core
Or just there in the darkness
waiting behind your door

Yet we all know It's going to get you
like the plague of middle ages
Before you know it there you are
running for the cages

Oh no ..........its the Love Monster!

Dude, You have no idea what you've written here! lol That love monster makes people crazy. For the first time in my life the sucker showed up and started snacking on me like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. lol

Voted up and beautiful. I don't think that love monster would scare me. Probably an old softy afraid of its own shadow.

The Love Monster! I didn't see that one coming, ha ha. I'm wondering if it's akin to the Cookie Monster-that's the one that's always chasing me, lol.

Lovely poem-fun and uplifting with a twist of surprise at the end!
