The Tale of Dusk

The Tale of Dusk

A Poem by JLily98
"

Written from the prompt: A Sunset

"
Standing across the busy lives of city people
The world stops as the Ocean's salt lands on my lip
As each wave hits
The sun starts to hide behind the buildings 

Everyone tries to capture this moment 
In a picture, but it's nearly impossible 
It must be felt
So as I stand here, waiting...
I'm hoping you feel it too

The Moon peeks out with his friends
In hopes of finally seeing her
But, all he is told from the clouds is 
"She was lovely today" 

Even if she never feels it 
The Moon vowed:
"I'll die every morning trying to show her
how stunning she is"

He reflects off the Ocean 
As the Ocean blushes
She knows he's in love with her 
Best friend

Standing across the busy lives of city people
The world stops as the Ocean's salt lands on my lips 
As each wave hits
I realize
I am the Ocean...

Oh this is such a pleasant read. I felt immersed in this picture you painted, it brought back profound memories. The moon and ocean are such good metaphors. "He reflects off the Ocean as the Ocean Blushes" this part was genius. Lovely poem, well done. :)
