a poem i wrote about the moonlight


by Tunisia Jolyn

I found you

in the back of the room.

You stood


Like a stranger

with eyes fixed

on the spotlight.

You stared

at the many shades

of white,

golden in its


And I…

I stood


Like a friend

with eyes fixed

on the moonlight.

Sidebar: I honestly didn’t write this poem with an intention on aligning it with the film Moonlight. In fact, I was just writing because it flowed and that came out. Funny how much something can be engrained in you that it follows you wherever you may go creatively and literally.
