Lanterns in the Starless Ocean Night Sky


Darkness, an eternal void
Tears, faces filled with them
No stars, not one asteroid
No joy, no smile, no gem

Liquid of purity
But only few is not poison
Not all can see
The limited horizon

Liquid of humanity
But only few can be shed
Not all can see
How much we have wasted

Light, an eternal flame
Cheers, like a baby skin rash
No holes, not one game
No blood, no bone, no ash

Flames are not natural
But something we have made
We are not pure
For we know how to crusade

Humans and fire
The perfect match
Papers and wire
May work with a match

Darkness, the eternal void
Filled with light, eternal flames
Wasting water, you can now avoid
Poisonous water, mirrored frames

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Inspired by the movie 'Tangled' (that scene when the people let go of the lanterns) . One of the lines there (no blood, no bone, no ash) are not original though.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
