The Stars And Moon (poem)

Updated on April 17, 2017

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
