Here in this cold night
The world’s lit in moonlight
That’ll soon be gone.
But you know tonight, tonight,
I’m gonna disappear with the moon,
The moon.

Mom, tired of going with the flow
‘Cause Dad made my black and blue continue to grow
But Mom, you felt it too.
Just never thought to argue
Since Dad was the river.

Daddy, want to say goodbye,
But you’d try to stop me with a lie.
Mommy, won’t see you anytime soon
‘Cause I’m gonna disappear with the moon,
The moon.

The moon and me are halfway gone
And red will be all that’s left at dawn.
The devil can save a place for me.
Dad, you always said I belonged in Hell.
So now I hope you’re happy…with me.

Henry, Henry, Henry,
Hide!
Henry, Henry, Henry,
Hide!
No, no, no,
Don’t you Hide!
No, no, no,
Don’t you Hide!
No, no, no, no, no!

Dad,
You think you can stain me in blue and red?
Here’s news for you—I’m already dead!

Gonna disappear with the moon tonight
Tired of wanting to fight.
Mom, sorry to leave you in an eclipse,
But I have to disappear with the moon,
The moon…

Tired of going with the flow…

Hi! A while ago, you read one of my pieces and asked me to check this out... I know it's really late now but I am SO glad that I did. This piece is AMAZING. You gave me chills. Although this poem is about something tragic, you voiced it perfectly. I am so jealous of your talent! I would happy to read WHATEVER you write. Awesome job!

Wow. This is nice!! I love the flow of it, and how it's almost like a conversation. I'm guessing this poem is about an abusive relationship? Anways awesome job!
