When Only the Moon Stirred

When Only the Moon Stirred

A Poem by OctoberDawn
"

Another sleepless night renders me nostalgic.

"

Thoughts of yesterdays greet me as a guest

I, encumbered by the present pass by

Faces are laid in shallow graves unblest.

 

The sun completes his cycle once again

The moon slowly rises to fill the void

I Struggle to reverse this fact in vain

 

They say the future is both bright and clear

But how can we see it if our eyes fail?

Softly I into the past now do peer

 

Tomorrow is no certain thing for these:

Forgiveness, love, goals still beyond our grasp

These are the things that we should try to sieze

 

These are the thoughts that danced in the darkness

As night fell and when only the moon stirred
