When The Moon Doesn't Shine ♥

When The Moon Doesn't Shine ♥

A Poem by Jen Marks

I think this is probably the best free-verse poem I've written yet, just because of what it means to me. I hope it brings you all such strong emotions as I get when reading it! :)



Something feels unreal...

It's like it doesn't exist anymore

You appeared from the haze,

And you took me away.


Just you

And me,


But all alone.


This kind of thing

Has never happened before.

The moon has never slept

On a night like that.


No guiding light;

Just you and me,

And my guilt,

And your eyes.


Your eyes.


The ones that stared

Deep into my mind.


And loving.


The love that I can't have:



But I need to

Find your love

Once again.


I have never met

This kind of love

Ever in my life.


"Was it real?"

I will ask every night

When the moon doesn't shine.


This question

Cannot be answered,

Because it's forbidden to be asked.



Like our love.


And unjust;

Like when our lips met,

And our tongues touched.


So wrong,

But so right.


Like how your name is burned into my mind,

And how I think of you

Every night

When the moon doesn't shine.

I most certainly feel the same! this was really powerful, and moving. I really liked it, it was beautifully written and I can tell you were very passionate about what your writing about, It's like I can feel what your feeling when I read it. That was awesome, keep it up(:
