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

Beautifully written, luckily I have never suffered a broken heart from a failed relationship but have several times on the passing of loved ones

I have missed lovers, held tight to that pillow, and pretended....in linen and feathered kisses.

Such a nostalgic and romantic feeling pervades this piece. It conveys more than sensuality though. It has a tenderness and an underlying sadness and longing. This was quite beautiful. I enjoyed the read.
