In The Silver Night

I hear the clock ticking in the dark
It echoes my heart as I lay alone
With you in my head
Wanting you by my side
Wishing you were my own

The moon holds all my secrets
How I long to be in your heart
With words of love I’ve only said
Within my dreams there are many things
I want you to be a part

In the silver night

I did not think I could fall in love
Thought it a bother to have such
It seemed that Fate had other plans
To have you so close and yet so far
It is all just too much

Sometimes I think you could never care
For the type of man I am it’s true
Sometimes I think that you know
That I’d give you everything
And I hate myself for loving you

In the silver night…

And I’ll convince myself that I can manage
That caring is not an advantage
But now I know it’s a lie!

Loving you is a pauper’s face against the window
Wanting on that which I beseech
It’s a distance of galaxies when we’re feet apart
In my mind I know how’d your lips feel
Even though you are far out of my reach

It’s the eggshell syllables of your name
I whisper to your specter in Luna’s light
For once again I face the stars on my own
All alone

In the silver night

In the silver night…

  1. Unrequited love is always painful, as echoed in your words.
    Nice! (Your words, not unrequited love!)
    Anna :o]

  2. Very much enjoyed the conversational tone of this poem – you made it work very well here, I think.. Your refrain of ‘In the silver night’ is also very effective here too… A real pleasure to read such carefully sculpted writing… Thank you

  3. Amazing write specially with these lines:

    It’s the eggshell syllables of your name
    I whisper to your specter in Luna’s light

    A treat to read tonight!!!!

  4. The repetition of “in the sliver night,” adds emphasis and gives the poem a song-like quality .. one that echoes in the corridors of one’s heart. Stunning write 💝💝
