To The Night Without Stars - Poem by La Janine Garrett

I have known rivers
Ancient, dusty rivers
To a night without stars
From the tears of the moon
That filled these ancient rivers
Calm, cool face steering
Back at me, asked I for a kiss
I smile and nodded
Walking that sooth walk
On down to those tears of that of
A man who had once hold me till
The light of dawn
Who am I to deny
What was given freely to me?
I stop there along those muddy grounds
And cast one more glace to
What was once my lover
I reach to show care
He smile and said no that
This was mine
Mine alone
That I had nothing back there in the dark
Other than my mine’s sanity
What that is needed done
Had no hold on or
Meaning of that of mercy
