Moonlight Love

I stare into complete darkness
And see us so bright
The clouds take signal
They move on
Darkness slides

The soft moonlight hugs my soul
The way I dream of you hugging my body
I clutch back
My soul finds the warmth of your love
My hands pierce cold, thin air

This is sweet cruelty
Half of me knows your measureless love
The other half yearns
It needs to feel you

The moonlight seems to gravitate
Somewhere beyond the darkness
Love tells me it is you
That moonlight follows

If only I could see
How moonlight glows off of you again
Cold, thin air shall be a warm smothering breeze

Poetry is not my forte but I got a strong sense of (temporary?) loss from this piece. I very much liked the light/dark and the warm/cold contrasts. I also liked the idea of moonlight following the loved one. I guess the poem is about a specific person but it also conveys something of the universal yearning for a permanent love which, of course, is pretty much impossible, in this life at least. There's a sadness but also (maybe?)a measure of hope.
