Beating hearts, abuse

Hearts dance in the rays

I love this. Nice rhythm and hits all the tropes of moon-lore. Well done!

I am really tired while reading this poem, so it will take a few more times through to absorb it, but it is very beautiful. I love the use of single word lines.

Oh that was nice! I don't remember reading too many poems from you and while I like your prose, this was cool to see too.

Yeah, I do poetry rarely. I like it to rhyme and tell a story if I can.
