Curse you Moon

Curse you Moon

A Poem by Gideon X. A. Elson
"

Sometimes I feel like the moon is staring at me with a wanton disapproval

"
Curse you moon for the way you look at me,
Oh how I'd like to know what all you see,
Ravenous beast running whilst on the hunt,
Tears my own but now you I must confront,
For is but you that makes me cry this hour,
A chastising gaze my soul you devour,
Why is it you must look upon me so
And shower my face with radiant glow
I fear nothing good can come of this tie,
No not when you make me feel like to die
Curse you moon for the way you make me feel,
For plead now with you to hear my appeal,
Give me but three of the months many days,
Three days of relief from thy mighty blaze
And use thee I will to restore my soul,
That soul that the rest of the month you stole,
Do this for me and I curse thee no more,
Do this for me and replenish my core,
Moon I swear I can look at thee,
No more.

Moonlight has never given me negative thoughts, so I found your poem interesting. Moonlight has given me romance, feelings of peace and calm. Here though you curse the moon, but all is not lost. You are bargaining for change. Very creative. I enjoyed the read, the imagery and look forward to reading more from you.

Iambic pentameter was the meter of the great Elizabethan poets, and I admire your resolve in attempting it. As to the moon, I wouldn't take it too seriously. Nobody ever died of moon stroke.

Iambic pentameter is such a complex skill. I love reading them and this is excellent.

I don't believe I have ever heard the moon castigated like that. Personally, the moon has always been a peaceful companion in the night. Well, in any case, it is a well written poem. The meter, resembling a heartbeat, is nicely done. The subject matter is unusual. Yes, nicely done indeed. Thumbs up, my friend!
