A Poem by Christian Bonoan

The night was dead but we’re so alive   
we lived the night full of sweet bliss   
but the lights were there to catch us alive   
to cage us from the freedom we possess 

Once we’re known, they’ll all thirst   
for they love talking about the story of us   
we should hide, since our lives were cursed   
from the eyes of the people around us
We ran like animals from hunters   
for our lives that they want to devour   
hunters, oh they know no manners   
they only care for their so called power 

We know places to hide from the light   
as we see the light from the window pane   
and we loved each other ‘til the morning light   
over again until we’re all insane

I thought the poem was excellently done. The message is bold; it gives two lovers something they can live for, each other. Then the eyes of people who want to take that away from them stare them down. Well-done!

Very lovely poem, Christian. I could imagine two lovers who wanted to be alive but were cursed from the eyes of the people around them. The last stanza is beautiful.
