Animals - Poem by Meredith Fahey

I watched the moon fall down in your eyes
As the night gave way to morning
I had to go yet you had me linger still
Wanting to hold your nightingale
And hear her mournful songs, for comfort
Please don’t pluck my feathers and ask me to fly
Hearts don’t grow and mend you know
I watched the stars fade in your eyes
As you realized what you did to me
How human you became
No more of a guiltless animal
You know the sorrow
I’m sorry lion
I can’t sing for you again
My voice has been quieted
As these feelings overwhelm us
The human world and all its suffering
Are upon us
I should never have sung my praises
As we danced under the harvest moon
And sang to mother earth
