What This Summer Gave Me

What This Summer Gave Me

A Poem by kera moondust

Summers over and I'm in San Francisco have a poem about it =)


I’m on the fourth floor

With a balcony of some off helter apartment complex

                Below me

I can’t see the sky

Or try to make pictures out of clouds

                Separating smoke from the skies of my



There is a window in my


Where I can sit on my second story roof

And try to figure out what Rain feels like

When it patters hard against it

                And it is there I spent some time

Trying desperately to forget

                                Autumn is on its



You see my summer is over

                Or it almost may seem that way

And it seems the only things I’m leaving it with

                Are feet blackened by pavement and summer heat

                                And a never changing

                           Heart break


From some seaside lover who will never know

                                (or perhaps always know)

How much looking at the ocean

                Reminds me of his eyes


And even if I can’t spend


Sitting on my roof

Of that little gypsy castle house

This dirty city has been calling my name for



And Mr. Seaside eyes and I will move on

                He will meet some pretty girl

(In his freshmen English class)


Almost forgetting that

The sea and the sky

                                Even touched

Let alone shared a

                Kiss in

    The rain

Or even more


So I answered this city’s


With a heavy heart

                Burning eyes

And blackened pavement

I like it. It’s solid—can’t find much to critique.

The idea is clearly expressed. Only a few subltle criticisms maybe.

The language is a bit pedestrian in places.
