MOON TEARS


MOON TEARS

S.JENSEN (C) 2018

BATTLE SCARS

RINGING EARS

OF THE MINDS

SCRYING

WHERE DREAMS

DARE AND VOICES

SHOUT AND RAGE

DEEP INTO THE

NIGHT PREVENTING

NEEDED REST

LIKE ABSINTHE SHINES

COLOURS IN CLOSED EYES

THE HEADACHE LINGERS

DULL

SHARDS OF VISIONS

OF WALLS AND LIGHTS

A DIRECTION ASKED

A DIRECTION GIVEN

AND A TUNNELED LADDER

OUT TO WHERE

UNKNOWN

YET TRAVELED ANYHOW

FEAR LAY BEHIND

LIKE A DEEP CATCH

IN THE THROAT

AND TWINGES IN THE GUT

REMINDING ME

OF TIMES LONG AGO

THE SMELL OF SOMETHING

BURNING AND SMOKE RISING

JUST BELOW MY FEET

I CRY OUT INSIDE

WILL I EVER SEE YOU

WILL THIS EVER REACH

A END

A TREASURED THOUGHT

LOST ON A MOMENT

WHERE PEACE SAVES FROM

WAR

I JUST DON'T KNOW

YET I KNOW WHAT IS

WANTED

WHY ITS DENIED

I JUST DON'T KNOW

DIVINE RIGHTS OF

CENTURIES PAST

AND THE SIGIL

IN MY MIND

KNOWING WHAT

IT MEANS YET IT

CAN'T BE MADE

ITS JUST A TORTURE

TO REALIZE

THAT TRUTH

WHAT HUMANITY

IS LOSING AND NOT

A DAMN THING I CAN DO

MEANINGLESS THINGS

AROUND MY NECK

YET STILL I KEEP

THEM THERE

MY HEARTS CORE

COLD AND DIM

AS IT HAS TO BE

YET I LINGER IN

WITH HUNGER

TO BE

AND SEE

AND HUG

ONE

I KNOW NO MATTER HOW

FAR OR CLOSE

I AM FOREVER OUT

OF REACH

LIKE THE DEW DROPS

FALLEN FROM THE GRASS

CRYSTALIZED BY THE COLD

AS CRISP AIR IN MY LUNGS

I KNOW NOT

ANYTHING ELSE TO DO

MY MOON LADY SHINED

ON SHORES I CAN

ONLY LOOK AT AND WEEP

MORE TEARS INTO

RIVERS FOREVER

BELOW THE MOON'S

FEET.
