the sound of the moon

the sound of the moon

A Poem by Scisenheart
"

this is just a deppressing poem about wanting to escape the city. :(

"

the moon is out, the night is near
the sky is still blue clear
but i begin to quake in fear
i'd really rather not be here


the moon is out, the world is dark
untill on the neon lights spark
the songs of the street, a tone deaf lark
as drunkards stumble through the park


the moon is out, but the day is nigh
high pitch squeels of police sirens cry
to clean up the nights wreckge, they try
then sunlight fills the starless sky


the moon is gone
and i must try
to move along
and not to cry
I could sing a better song
to say im fine would be a lie
I want to leave the drunken throng
another day for my soul to die


the moon is out, but i'm far from there
an owls hoot, the cry of a deer
are the sounds that welcome me here
theres nothing else i want to hear
and nothing else i shall
because, finnally
i have escaped
i wish...

Very good, good rhymes, imagery, and topic. Dont worry, you didnt plagiarize, keep it. A lot of people get inspiration from music and other literature.
