By the Pale Moonlight

It is the light of the moon

that makes you so beautiful.

Poor Zombie.

Stetched to almost breaking,

only able to make sounds

through rough, sewn lips.

I compliment

to save his feelings.

He doesn’t know.

He doesn’t know.

    The repetition at the end…It really tied it together. Short, but beautiful.

    Oh, thank you, Bluesander. Sometimes I like the challenge of brevity. Thank you so much for stopping by!

    Whoa. It kinda takes you by surprise – first you’re all “oh, a love poem” then “haha, a Zombie poem” then “…wow. A Zombie poem.”
