Just Tonight

Just Tonight short poem

Down by the river,
The moon seemed to glow.
Watching this beautiful scene,
Time seemed to slow.
The moon bounced,
Off the glittering water.
The crickets jounced,
Through swaying grass.
The only sounds were,
Nightime creatures.
Prior night a remote blur,
Just like the one before.
All that was clear,
Luminous opal infront of me.
All that was drear,
Brushed aside.
And just tonight,
This is how it would stay.

Just Trust... short poem

Maybe at another time this could have worked But for now we could never be… It’s like looking down the road and seeing a curve. You don’t know where it’ll take you or even if you’ll ever be back. But
