The moonflower's tune,
After silver moons,
Helplessly sighs.
My grieving heart rings,
As the flowers sing,
How the time went by.

Exhausted and forlorn,
Suns rays make them mourn
As dawn begins.
I have no new start,
No forgiving heart,
No time to mend.

And my soul is dead,
Closed off by the dread
Of shattered dreams.
The flowers confine,
Reminding my mind,
What alone means.

The author's comments:
I was inspired to write this poem because I wanted to show how things that go on around us can reflect how we feel and what we are thinking.

Wow. That's all I can manage, an awestruck wow. I have no idea why more people have commented on this. This is wonderfully written, and while slightly sad, indefinitely true. I relate. I love your work...Maybe we can be friends?
