Sanctified Moonlight

The darkest of nights I couldn’t break free
Thought hopelessly bleak was my destiny
Now these embers of desire are lit for you
Like the sky as it wears a warm night’s hue
I sense you have a tender heart
Nobly lacking a caustic part
Like an orange glow in the dusk sky
With the rising moon, eternally shy
I was regretfully praying rejected prayers
Trying to avoid my mind’s tangled snares
Then in the mild light as my past began to fade
I found my innocence again with the love we made
Looking to the moon before my lucid dreams
Guiding me to you with lucent gleams
