Treasure Island

Mitchell Greenwood


The moon weeps


The moon weeps
Without a warning
In the ebony night
When it becomes lonesome
As the stars have departed

The moon weeps
In clandestine silence
Tears from the heavens
Overseeing all the sadness
As the stars have departed

The moon weeps
In self pitying sorrow
For being so alone
In such a big sky
It fills with melancholy

The moon's weeping
Stops so abrupt
As it holds power and luminescence
It is gently reminded
The time will come to shine

Like the moon
We sometimes all feel alone
Misunderstood and sorrowful
So like the moon we must recall
We all shall have our time to shine

    Unusual thought, that the moon would weep from loneliness. Why not think that the moon would shine brighter without all the competition....or not at all, because of the storm clouds...interesting... (Report) Reply

    And so it will shall be, as the moon still shines, despite all its astonomical
    intrusions...Fine Penning, my friens...Intruiging & creative pholosophy...

Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
