Poem -

If You Were Moonlight

Dork's Entrance Into Wacky Jillian's Mooning Contest.

If You Were Moonlight

I saw the moonlight standing there 
And lost myself within her stare 
She said 'I have a dream for you' 
And flashed her eyes of china blue 

She spoke to me in whispered song, 
And coaxed my heart to come along 
To ride her warm, reflective light 
Into the dark, inviting night 

So I took off toward the skies 
Where starlight danced within her eyes 
And as the world did fade from view, 
The light of Heaven filtered through 

I can't explain this moonlight dream 
Though love can make a vision seem, 
As if the worlds up in the skies, 
Hold beauty near your brilliant eyes.

Marionette, my wonderful friend, you're so nice! 
I know you have to say my writing is good because I pay you quite well, but I really appreciate it anyway! 
Anyway, it was either this one, or one about mooning someone through the school bus window, and unfortunately, this one won out. LOL. 

Thanks for the kind words, as always, you're sweeter than a giant pile of vanilla icing topped with confectioner's sugar and Mentos! 

Hugs, 

Matthew.

Marionette, 
I'm sure you'll whip something off in 11 seconds that is amazing, and curls all of our corneas! 
Get going! 
Hey, who won the Sock Contest??!! You're supposed to be judging. People want their prizes(and the monkey innards are becoming slightly offensive, in smell). Thanks! 

Matthew.

Jillespie, 
You are way too kind, but in a very nice way. 
I actually did a Vulcan mind meld through the internet wires on Cheerie, and stole a little of her romanticism from her head area(I may have gotten too much though, as I just tried to write the yak poem, and it came out as an incredibly romantic tale with the large, hairy beast!). 

Thank you so much for liking my shamizing. You're great! 

Matthew. 

PS. YOU have to pick this winner. I guess(from what I've heard), the prizes are: 
-Some gluten. 
-Infection Cream. 
-Pinky Tuscadero's leather jacket(prior to her being crushed in the demolition derby). 
-A giant, foam finger stating 'I won Jillian's contest'. 
-Yak excrement. 
-And, an autographed picture of Charles Nelson Reilly. 

So, get judging!

Thank you, Jillian. 
Sometimes, during a full moon, I grow a great deal of hair all over my person, and some fangs, and start howling, so I wonder if I have an unfair advantage, due to werewolf love? I hope not, because I really want the big, foam finger(have you ever seen a werewolf with a giant, foam finger? They're wicked scary. Are you werewolfian at all? Let me know. Thanks.

Thanks Greg! But, they are in no way better than yours! You are a fantastic writer, and a great guy, and everyone likes you on here(I have negative 12 fans!). 
Thank you so much, though, my friend!

Hi Susan! 
Thank you very much! 
Nice to meet you. I will have to check out some of your writing, which I'm sure is lovely. 
Have a nice day!

Hello Matthew!  Wowzers this is romantic!  But there was not one single yak mentioned...I figured one would be serenading under the moon...but you managed to hold off with humor and go the whole romantic route that is swooningly lovely!  I don't think I will look at the moon the same way again...sigh!  I love the use of personification to make the moon a very romantic sight.  I don't think it is fair for you to enter these contests of poetic themes, because you are so creative and can write about anything.  This is beautiful.  It makes me want to pay more attention to the beauty of the moon.  Thank you for sharing such lovely flowing poems.  You know I always love the romantic genre poems...and you are so sentimental in them, which I love.  Love n Hugs, Cheerie ;)

Hi Cheerie, 
Thank you so much! You inspire me with your wonderful, romantic writes(and I actually scooped up these words from the fragments you left on your cutting room floor). lol. 
Honestly, it's a tremendous compliment to be beautifully commented on by the Lordess of Loving, so I'm truly honored. Thank you so much. 
And yes, I can write about anything(but quite badly, unfortunately!). lol. 
I think we may have to have a contest in which we can only use numbers, and/or complex algebraic equations, then I may stand a chance! I have begun a poem called: 3 x 17= 11y(divided by the square root of nine). It's a romantic comedy about how the number 4 fell in love with some fractions and beget the number 7. It's really squalid. 
Anyway, get writing! Or numbering! 
Hugs, and bugs, 
Matthew.
