Shades of Grey

Shades of Grey

A Poem by MOON

 

There is no other just you and I

Living with me you thought you would die

A stone at hand and a reason why

Burning in me liberations sigh

 

A flame of a township in my heart

There is a stage and I have my part

All my shed tears now a work of art

Here is the new dawn here is its start

 

Nail all my hopes and dreams to a mast

Tell me freedoms song is iron cast

Forget bloody wounds it cannot last

Cold memory a train flashing past

 

Hear the pain filled drumbeat in the night

Swallow bitter pills of black and white

the last line just made me love this poem

Posted 4 Years Ago


I really enjoyed reading this poem. It has an excellent rhythm to it reinforced by the steady rhyme scheme that echoes in each stanza, and the images evoke a sense of freedom mixed with melancholy, adventure meets misadventure, like you're running to be free but also constantly trapped in that search ("nail all my hopes and dreams to a mast"). Absolutely beautiful; it could definitely be set to music (or make really good spoken word).

very lyrical, i agree: chilling, your words weaving hints of aching memories haunting you, always lingering. beautifully written, enriched with sorrowful beauty. thank you for sharing :)

It seems wistful and sad...such are the wounds of wayward loves and relationships that end on the rocks. I enjoyed the read.

i enjoy this poem
a silvery stream
of dancing light it had me
going going going
on like music it's rocking
- don't stop!

Those last two lines really drives home this wonderfully melancholy piece.

Very dark and grim. The pain echoes through every word along with haunting imagery. I feel like I can relate so well. I love it!!
