In The Silken Moonlight.

Updated on October 18, 2013

To walk the chosen road

To climb the chosen hill;

To fight that broken heart

A lifetime's joy to kill.


To marry your chosen beau

To never taste true love;

Find your heart so whole

A passion from high above.


Allow your heart to feel

The joy of treasured bliss;

To run in to his arms

For that embracing kiss.


In the silken moonlight

a heart so full

to serenade

her beau her all.

Stars of sapphire

jewels of the night;

on this eve

of her dawn

her doubts her folly.

Those lips so very sweet

carried to pastures new;

a heart

confined within

the chains of expectance;

an encasement

to a barrier

of thorns

as she lay her body down

to days of old

ne'er days anew.


The twilight calls her

to rest in his arms

her prince

her saviour

to be loved and so sweetly cherished

for eternity.

To escape

from morose routines

rooted deeper and deeper from



generation .

These ways an echoing thud

their acceptance as hollow

as false

as shallow as

cold and empty hearts.

Spite and vile spirits

oblivious to the love and beauty in life

Their corroded values

nothing but a stagnated stench.

Anticipation filled her being

her soft tears but a whisper

for this

her beau

her all.

She knew her way

her future

as sure

as the sound

of those heavy footsteps

advancing as sure

as ever.

Excitement floods through her

cursing being;

her beau her all.

Under the Old Oak Tree


under the silken moonlight

her prince

her beau her all.

With all her being

the nights darkness

called his name ;

on a stallion so black

as sleek

as satin

he appeared;

running into the strength of his being

gasping 'I love you'

words which told him all.

Two souls whose love would last

all through the pains of time

hearts and beings entwined;

her beau her all.

The next awaking morn

corrosive and twisted


never loved

life's paths

so cold;

Today's shame could they survive ?

Cold meats uneaten

a now insignificant feast once fit for a queen

left to disintegrate ;those saturated juices

today congealed

today a corrosive stench.

The expensive jewelled gown

hanging lifelessly

had lost its lustre !

Twisted and cold expressions

told of their silent torment !!

Hearts of steel


in this

the coldest shame of their time.

The Wedding Banns had been called

but now whispers so poisoned;

these hooded claws

their powers distinguished;

those talons of spite

crumble to the dust of oblivion



feelings so hollowed

silence a deafening void.

On the same new morn

two lovers rode

into the sunset ;

so sure of their love

dancing to their very own tune

gentle promises of virtuous strengths

their twining a moment in time

their caressing needs

all they needed

their future

a freedom

so whole


they reached

into their deepest hearts

unblemished love's tongues of fire

a force of eternal bliss

cleansing souls.

A strength of undying force

to burn down the barriers of generations

the words of cold hearts

making room for

a ferocious but beautiful energy

flowing through the broken dams of times gone by!!!

Truth, honesty and heartfelt love

finally broken that mould.
