Subject: Nocturne

Some memories linger in my mind's eye,
Brief moments caught in frozen time,
That will stay with me until I die,
Outliving this ephemeral rhyme.

One night still holds such piquancy,
Though many years have passed since then,
A memory that I hold dear to me,
For I never saw your face again.

That night,sweet nature served us well,
The rain hung suspended in the sky,
The stage was set for lovers to dwell,
Only you knew our love was destined to die.

We were both such troubled souls,
Having taken refuge in each other's dreams,
Love and life, out of our control,
Perhaps we both knew things were'nt as they seemed.

We walked beneath the half-crescent moon,
Which reflected in your glacial eyes,
And I felt as though we were cocooned,
From all deceit and hurtful lies.

This time, I felt things would go right,
We would stroll beneath this empyrean revealed,
And spend this magic, star strewn night,
Lost in a labyrinth of lilac fields.

Yet I had noticed in your demeanour,
A reticence never there before,
Had you found a place where the grass was greener,
In the arms of one who loved you more?

Practiced in this art, I asked,
To hear of your new lover's name,
The sky turned a deeper shade of black,
As if the moon had hid her face in shame.

Your tears glistened in the remaining light,
Some clandestine alliance was meekly avowed,
As your words diffused into the silent night,
They cast a sempiternal shroud.

I bore no malice, for what was your crime,
But to vitiate my deluded bliss?
You wrought your ivory hand from mine,
And parted with an awkward kiss.

All live for dreams, some may come true,
And some may go astray,
But to preserve this memory of you,
That night, I gave my dreams away.
