Call of the night...A poem


Do you hear the call of the night?

Can you find a way?

Does the appeal of the moon entice

To turn from the light of day


To leave what you love behind

Can you say farewell

To follow me love blind

knowing your life i will dispel


I will hold you close to my breast

I will soothe your fear

My love, my heart my conquest

Making your path to me clear


Come the gentle twilight

We will rise together

Where the night awaits filled with delight

Our hearts and minds bonded forever


Listen to the call of the night

And step out of the light with me

Let the power of the moon excite

Our love eternal was meant to be.

..That is one of the best things an aspiring poet can hear, to know that my writing is being read and even more importantly enjoyed is an honor and a thrill.

Thank you for your wonderfully kind words it means a lot to me :)

.....yes it took me to another world - another time - another place ....... a very rare gift when a writer can do that to me - to be able to transport your reader and you are unaware of the space you're in but it pulls you in just the same because there is something poetic-magnetic about these words .........

K.A.E Grove (author) from Australia on October 24, 2010:

Thanks De Greek, another attempt to soften the darkness that creeps so much into my writing. :)

Beautiful poem! To step into a new love, is truly like stepping into the dark. Perhaps you will not see another sunrise ;)

Thank you all so much! I wrote this in the chaos of my kids so i wasn't sure how it flowed. thanks so much for the great feedback


the first verse is my favorite as well :) thanks so much for stopping by :)

tnderhrt23 on October 21, 2010:

Very interesting. powerful, thought-provoking piece...my favorite lines are your opening verse, "Do you hear the call of the night? Can you find a way? Does the appeal of the moon entice To turn from the light of day".

There is but a hint of darkness to this poem that lingers on the edge...well done!

MiseryHinata on October 21, 2010:

It was a very beautiful poem ^-^ thanks for sharing, you have a real talent for writing

Alison Puchert from Cape Town, South Africa on October 21, 2010:

What a beautiful poem. Couples should say it to each other before they get married or better still, say it together after their vows.
