Game of Revenge


The moon weeps its sparkling diamond tears
Blessing night with its illuminating light
Purity and insanity are peers
Both reflected by the twisted spite

A trinket shows more worth then pawns’ life
Guardian knights of duty are flung aside
The empty void fills with the King’s cold strife
Loneliness doesn’t seek to confide

Past becomes blurred by personal dreams
Logic and love change to nothingness and rage
Midnight of black and white Queens’ piercing screams
A fallen star cannot be on stage

The moon in the darkness weighs the scales
The King takes the last plunge without looking back
The black bird will sing its final dark tales
Legend and fact meet in the attack

And when the moon cries softly one what,
Will the final wishes of the hearts transcend?
Beginning on the white seamless side but,
The moon’s dark side is the last game end.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
