The Stars And Moon (poem)

the_stars_and_moon

The stars and moon where all he could recall

Reflections of the pool beneath his feet

For now reality was in retreat

Towards remnants of a simple lovers’ squall

-

She said that all that once was is complete

A fact that he no longer could forestall

He still recalls the coldness of it all

A bitter cold now lying in the street

-

Was this the final future of a kiss

Was this the destiny of lovers’ vow

Was this the silence broken hearts have found

-

And there the stars and moon he could not miss

Which drift into a nearby gutter now

As he now drops his knife upon the ground
