Haunted Moon


by Krystal K. L. Shaffer

I’m enchanted by the sight
Of the haunted moon
Stars mystical, shining
Complete this enrapturing tune.
My imagination captivated,
Seduced like a charm
My self-conscious bewitched
Discharges an inner alarm.
The haunted moon—so dim
Intangible, cosmic in sight
Capturing my imagination
Perfecting an exceptional night.
Companions barely visible
Unaware of my senseless state
Intelligence fully abandoned
Mind calm, serene and sedate.
I’m enchanted by the sight
of the haunted moon
Dodging like a mirage
Through the shadows of my room.
