The Cruel Moon

Like a thief,

The sun sneaks towards the horizon.

A slight chill fills the air.

Twilight lingers longingly.


The cruel moon marks the birth of night.

Stars warn that our time is short.

By the fire’s naked light;

Forever is this moment.


This only moon will be watching,

Every night,

We are apart.

As bright and enduring as;

Our love could be.


The sun will make our days warm.

Through the lonely night,

A multitude of the same stars;

Are there for us to share.

Interesting poem that mixes the untamed skies natural environment with a love affair.

Thanks for commenting Flash. Yes, this is just a romantic poem. A "so long" rather than "goodbye" poem. Glad you found it interesting.
