The Moons Child (Sample) - Poem by Jeffrey M Lewis

The media and
messengers wavered.
Banners screamed 'War
has been waged, unite
our men in holy arms.'
The armies began
to group like mercury.
Sitting at the camp,
we are wondering
what we will become.
Our fires were blazing
for warmth and cooking.
Huddled like stones we
sit one next to the
other for support.
We joke and laugh hard
pretending not to
remember our life
or the consequence
of our not breathing.
As we tell stories
about family
members, we keep them
distant from feeling,
for our own safeguard.
Solitude grew with
great force and growing
recognition of
our dependencies
to the ones we loved.
All these latent thoughts
are entangled by
our fires fierce flames which
shoot them to heaven
to sparkle like stars.
