Paper Moon

A Poem by Manpreet

This is a previous version of Paper Moon.



Paper Moon

 

Dream of this night of emotion

coyly concluded its charm

A lone dazed morning light,

found its way to an open palm


Heart quivered for strength to caress,

tired oozing wounds

Eyes go blank with ears struck by

sonar of crumpling Paper Moon

 

Journey of an endless age,

abandoned in deep- dark pain

Finding ways to clean the stain of,

dried- tears fallen in vain


Willingly allow this heart to go numb

with agony of sighs

As we slither doubtfully over

all fancy wasted lies


Known is late

not to know it soon

While destiny chose its path

to follow uneven lines of a Paper Moon

 

Facts in disguise

wearing blood of truth,

Shamed me to get up and shine

Poison of betrayal is the same taste of,

emotion’s seasoned wine


Let silence cover its face and hide behind,

thousand shrieking drums

Aspirations run to follow again,

the light of your morning sun


Don’t feed hope with silver spoon

cause it will only get you to ...

"A crushed Paper Moon"

This is wonderful. The title drew me in and I'm so glad it did. You describe this fantastic journey of life and so much more with your words and fantastic imagery. I think my favorite line is "Let silence cover its face and hide behind / thousand shrieking drums" The contrast between silence and the shrieking drums is brilliant. Really nice writing!
