Whims of Moonlight

Whims of Moonlight

A Poem by Laurierose
"

Do you miss me, too?

"
Eyes misted once I read 
I closed them and shook my head 
Breathed in my resolve, and stared hard 
Instead 
Sheets have dropped in temperature 
Hands have caressed the firm lines 
In bed 
This roof of dreams once reflected night 
Of stars that captured the whims of moonlight
Future uncertain yet presently clear;
Even a love, so tight, could be bound 
By fear

I do agree.
"Even a love, so tight, could be bound
By fear"
Fear can make sweetness turn sour. Very nice flow of words led reader to a honest ending. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

This made me shiver, and also made me feel lonely, in a romantic kind of way. Moonlight will always do that to me. You did a great job capturing a feeling with little word usage. Great poets can do that.

"Even a love, so tight, could be bound
By fear"
Really interesting idea that is not too common, but it is so true. Love is always laced with fear. Fear of losing the person to an affair, a car accident, cancer, or simply feelings fading. Or maybe you mean fear more literally, like in the case of the complexity of feelings that goes with domestic disputes. So many interpretations... loved it!

Drawn in by the mention of moonlight. Beautiful imagery comes across to the reader, as does the emotion in your lines. 'sheets have dropped in temperature", this really encapsulates someone is missing from the bed.An enjoyable read.

You're very welcome.
I love moon-writes, so was naturally drawn to your title and the poem didn't disappoint either. I like the imagery in this one and the emotion definitely tugs the reader's heart. Nicely penned, L.

You would always think that love and fear could never go together, but here they are.
Love is roses to begin with. But roses also have thorns.
Thinking poem this one, like it.

Mystical...I like that :) Thank you for the sincere review, my friend.
tender and gently flowing my dear friend, sometimes we face uncertainties even through the greatest Love, all the negative feelings their source is fear, sometime it's even our fear of losing that loved one what lead us into this kind of situation, but surely we can beat it with our faith.
