The Moon

The Moon

A Poem by Tom Chan

Nobody understands the Moon.



You are so scared
Your heart is pumping so hard
Sweats are running down from your forehead
Illusions scare away your sanity


You scream, you beg
You crawl, you cry
I stare at you with my shiny eyes
I whisper, I want you to die


A giant lobster swims ashore
Two silver dogs howl, when they see me
Two tall towers stand around me
Like two faithful devotees


The darkness blindfolded you
You crawl around like a night crawler
Listen to me, close your eyes tightly
Because you’ll never understand me

This is a great piece i loved it
mostly :
"You scream, you beg
You crawl, you cry
I stare at you with my shiny eyes
I whisper, I want you to die"

great work :)

The imagination is simply painted, carefully written... it adds a very personal touch to your poem which is, all in all, perfectly expressed.
The plenty use of verbs in the second stanza is lovely.

I like this, you worded it pretty well. The third stanza was creative, and my favorite stanza was the final one, good job on this keep it up.
