I write what I feel…

Wild Moon Night



‘Twas a wild moon night

With creatures taking flight,

Dogs howled, cats yowled

And the wind lashed branches ‘cross the sky.

Sheltered safe in our secret place, you and I,

Hearts rock ‘n rolling, emotions exploding,

We loved as no-one ever loved before;

Our love would never die,

Or so we thought, both you and I.

But time did not agree

Faithfulness you failed to show

Nor truthfulness; loyalty was fantasy,

And so the dream was doomed to die,

Dashed by the shock of a fatal blow.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Wow. You can feel the intensity and passion in this


  2. ah dang…as with most dreams…born before their time they crash and burn in the face of reality….sadly…was loving the feel of the opening…yet the eventual turn…


  3. Oh!… Perhaps man is as wild as the moonlight , Denise, waxing and waning and never remaining consistent for two neighbouring days. No use mooning about man’s faithlessness.


  4. Fabulous writing, adee. I was so sorry that there was such a sad ending. 😦


  5. How cursed be, the cheating heart that fails love’s simple test, and is now doomed to beat forever, within another’s breast.
    A very deep and telling poem Denise thank you for sharing it with us..


  6. Starts so well, but ends so sadly!


  7. Enjoyed the start of this poem, Denise. Love the title.


  8. Beautifully written and heartfelt, Denise.


  9. It’s agony to discover betrayal … the heart does not want to let go.
