Treasure Island

Kathryn Garner

Glimpse of a Dead Moon


like the stolen moon
it just slipped away in existance
just as her smile
fell away from her face

they told her he was dead
no more lithium
she'll take her death bed

just as the moon dies
but in conflict
her smile, her body wont rise

from a forced crescent moon
to a deaths funeral tune
marching foward to her tomb

no longer the cold empty shell
from the moment he died to her
and her love and smile fell
from her apathetic face
stricken with a sickness named tears

every month the moon dies
but no longer will her body rise

her body is a glimpse of a dead moon

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
