Velvet Moon You Are My True Friend - Poem by Poetic Judy L Emery

VELVET MOON YOU ARE MY TRUE FRIEND

I written my pains down for so many years,
but all you can hear are the rumors of this town,
~where my tears are always overflowing,
while they make me feel like a wounded clown.

The poetic side of who I am
was made to bleed so that my pains would pour out into ink
~for all to read about me.

Yes, I am the gossip that rolls out from the haters mouth.
Ah! But I, still hold my head up high,
~while I write my famous lines.

My pains are very real no matter what others say
~ I stand strong in my faith,
although my poor heart sinks in a lifetime of pain.

All I see is the gray that holds the gloom,
at night I sit alone crying out to that big velvet moon,
~ as my pains pour out in painful June.

Oh! I prayed so many time for my pains to be removed.
In those cold stormy nights, that gives me so much fright
~I held on for dear life.

Because these old memories don't seem to go away
~ nor night nor day.
My sadness just wants to stay, leaving me in heartaches
that brings on those rainy days.

What have I become, to allow this pain to over take me?
~My dear sweet velvet moon,
you had seen all that I had gone through, and look here we are
once again holding secrets my faithful friend.

I know in life things seem to end with pain,
~ everyone I had known, left me all alone.
But isn't that what my story is about?

I do know one thing for sure,
you have been around longer than anyone I had ever known.
You know everything, you seen it all even in ancient of days.

Even when evilness of hateful humans made empires
~ that tried to kill off ones holy faith.
By far you seen all things. Oh, my dearest friend, you maybe silent,

yet, you are the eye of this painful life.
~ You had seen the most famous love that was ever made,
my story in written in the color of velvet gray.

Oh, Velvet moon, you are my very best friend to this day.

~I had written all my words in the place of doom.
