The Haunted One

The Haunted One

A Poem by MsJewel

When night gives pause to the pale moon above

where beauty found me once, my heart, your love

still warms this tender place where I’ve become

a prisoner to the night, the haunted one

 

Catching whispers of moonlit memories

of words that lovers say, now reveries

to dress my pillow, silly as it seems

with visions of you love, and in these dreams…

 

You kiss my lips and brush the falling tears

in which I drown and yet I breathe, the years

cannot erase the ache, although divine

are the night skies above when moonlight shines

 

You may keep a piece of this heart that grieves

and I will keep the night, the memories

I really love this poem as l believe l'm privy to your inspiration for the feelings and emotion you've penned.
Very powerful yet melancholy.

I was hoping to see the last line of the first verse repeated in the last verse.

Still love your poetry and the beautiful person behind the pen.

Moonlight can make the mind wander. The memory bank can bring to the fore past special moments. Grief comes alive more at night, I have found. Beautifully penned and your artwork is an excellent match for your lines.
