    Ben, I love that you discover her true form only upon seeing her shadow, it adds to the otherworldly of it all. Beautiful write.

    Ooooh, this one’s nice! Beautifully written!

    Benjamin, I love the way this makes it so clear that muse is an “otherworldly” or ephemeral phenomenon. Perfect! You always seem to pack a lot of meaning into few words, and it gives inspiration to others to write and ponder more. Part of what I love about your poetry!

      Yes, exactly. This person is out of this world. Or rather they are in the world but not of it entirely. Thanks. That means a lot. Very kind compliments. Hope you’re doing well!

        Even your comments about this entity are romantic. It’s captivating! :)) As for me, I was not feeling well at all a couple of weeks ago, but doing better now. Thank you so much, and hope you are well too!

        This entity, haha. This entity is romance itself, I’m certain. Sorry to hear this about your health. I’m glad you’re feeling better, now. Do take care. And I’m fine thanks.

      • Lia says:

        Then this entity/person is you, perhaps! :)) Glad to hear you’re fine… thanks again, and take care, likewise. :))

        No, it’s not me at all. But maybe soon if I take Yassy’s advice. Thanks again. Be safe 🙂

    I love the poem. It is creating a magical image, and just saying the words – the pale moon brings the atmospheric image to mind.

    As for the alien/angel/muse, without a doubt, they live on the moon. But on the night of a full moon, do be careful, you may disappear, never to be seen again.

    Thank you.
