NaPoWriMo Day 14 – If Only

The inspiration behind this poem wasn’t just the moon for a change(!) it was the night itself. I hope you enjoy the read. 🙂

It makes my knees buckle

from underneath me

if only I could

capture this air

this startling, night air

and stopper it up

full in my lungs

forever.

It makes my heart stop beating

and gasp

if only I could

steal the stars straight from the sky

they have the same sparkle in them

as your eyes.

It makes my mind freeze

in awe

if only I could

take the lunar light

pour it into a cup then drink

and down every last drop.

It makes me listen

to sounds which I can’t hear

and it makes me feel

things which I thought weren’t there. . .

If only I could

hug the night

squeeze it, hold it tight,

if only I could

go to sleep on a cloud

and wake up gazing far beyond

what I thought I could see

if only. . .

If only everyone knew

the world is so much more

than anyone imagines it to be.
