Moonlight Through My Window


Moonlight Through My Window

Moonlight slipped through my window

highlighting her every flaw

illuminating white streaks in her mane

the stretch marks that she wore

creases formed on the edges of her eyes

youthful features now appearing dull

moonlight displayed her every flaw

she never appeared more beautiful

  1. Brilliant. You make the reader question the character’s depth of character by creating an apparent superficial, egotistical, shallow and destructive description of how he views his long time significant other and in a final crescendo reveal a kindness, warmth and love we all seek. This final view is a life long journey worth living.
    You nailed this one!

        1. Well, Hollywood and the fashion world have long ruined things for women with the anorexic look. Now, everyone in social media is using photoshop and other programs to alter their looks. And yet others resort to cosmetic surgery. It is like nobody loves themselves anymore. People have become SO SHALLOW. Even flaws can be attractive.

        1. I wouldn’t think a woman with an Unshielded Heart would have any doubts. Smile. Men and women travel through life focused on their own insecurities. We waste so much time focused on the wrong things, don’t we? I am happy you enjoyed it. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful day.

                those swirling cloud appearing at horizon,
                like a mob a swaying drunks,
                showing taverns sully the soul,
                spare me the doubts and ill-will,you think l am feeble,
                thoughts of abstinence,why so soon i am still young.(i am still young-2).
                how can this be mystical poetry,Rosh ásked,”seems more like lutful poetry,”.

                when Rosh does not argus,Dev continued
                all this talk of prayer these worries of redemption

                Warning of hellish torments.
                Listen up Admonisher you are a bit strange
                Have passion and youth ever been saparated
                When gracfule youth abound
                resplendent and mischivious
                And winds ars fragrent would not desire be inflamed.

                i have lost hope and desapair logice and presumption.
                I see nothing àround me nothing exept my goblet.
                let there be no death of wine my friendship with pub unstraiend.
                Let the gathering live on fore ver younğ and hectic.
                Sing such a melody,lady singer my soul surges sorrows wane.
                effect of instrumetal music sets on my heart fire
                Let everyone impĺor,do’nt your hand bartender.

              1. I’m so sorry Andrew. I know all about bad days. It’s been a hellish week but I have hope for tomorrow. I hope your tomorrow is better. And you are most welcome. I find your voice to be very positive and uplifting and always a spot of sun in this vast wasteland of social media.

    1. Thank you so much for the reblog. I appreciate the gesture. Thanks for the compliment as well. After a woman dedicates and invests her life in a man, the least he could do is admire her in her golden years as he did in her youth. Thank you.
