A crater on the moon

A crater on the moon

A Poem by SleeplessVolcano

Your presence


The sun, moon, and stars to me

I thought

I found a staircase

That could at least give me

One last glimpse of your face

But alas

It was made of wood

And my last wish

Burnt to ashes

The last place I’m finding solace

Is a crater on the moon

Aw.. My first reaction to this beauty.. Sometimes our dream or a lover is too far out of reach, that we can only dream the unreachable feeling... Well done my friend...

Thanks Pax - yes that dream is out of our reach. Time runs out and we can’t get it back.
