Moonlight Through My Window

Moonlight Through My Window

Moonlight slipped through my window

highlighting her every flaw

illuminating white streaks in her mane

the stretch marks that she wore

creases formed on the edges of her eyes

youthful features now appearing dull

moonlight displayed her every flaw

she never appeared more beautiful

  1. Brilliant. You make the reader question the character’s depth of character by creating an apparent superficial, egotistical, shallow and destructive description of how he views his long time significant other and in a final crescendo reveal a kindness, warmth and love we all seek. This final view is a life long journey worth living.
    You nailed this one!

    • Thank you so much for the reblog. I appreciate the gesture. Thanks for the compliment as well. After a woman dedicates and invests her life in a man, the least he could do is admire her in her golden years as he did in her youth. Thank you.
