Moonlight Whispers

Moonlight Whispers

A Poem by M'Fun Keap

Allegorical poem on Love and Temptation. Every sentence has a deeper connotation representing people, places, things and emotions


Staring down the old alley in the silent night,

The Moon stretching her arms down into my window

A pen in my hand and a book on the table

With pages staring back at me with eyes open in expectation


Candle flame flickers as the cool breeze strolls in through my window

Startling my curtains as she runs her fingers through my hair

She beckons me with her seducing whispers luring me to my bed

I look out my window and your light still burns


I look to my watch as it runs on

Time racing through the endless maze

With stamina stronger than that of a raging bull

Urging me on towards the ever distant target


Cold kisses, cold hands from the east, west and south

Now caress my skin sending cold shivers down my spine

I reach out to close my window and hide in disguise

But it always seems I stand out somehow


The winds grow fierce and struggle with this window

And I begin to sense a storm coming

Clouds forming in my mind start to blur my vision

I start to pray the raindrops don't drown me


I stare at the open sky and whisper into the ears of the Moon

Hoping she will somehow re-echo my thoughts back home

I sit at dawn writing out their names on my misty window

Going over the pages of old happy memories


The candle is almost gone and the flame is dying out

I have to go on now because time has left without me

Leaving behind the remains of an empty pen

And pages that now spell out your name...
