I look out,
Into the night,
The full moon,
Shining so bright,
The images,
Take me away,
My mind lingers,
Wanting to stay,
So I stand here,
And play dumb,
Though I know,
Tomorrow is soon to come,
Tomorrow I will fake a smile,
And pretend everything is okay,
Though slowly my soul,
Is drifting away,
Because my hero is dead,
My hero is gone,
And I must face,
My battles alone,
But I must forget,
My pain and sorrow,
Because I have to live,
Live beyond tomorrow,
So one last look,
At the perfect night,
At the full moon,
that’s shining so bright,
I slip under the warm blankets,
Of my bed,
I try to sleep,
But tomorrow I dread,
Because once again,
I will have to live without you,
And each day that passes,
I pray-it’s the last I have to.

Most of my poems deal with my past and how hard it was to get through it. But like most people, i got through it and now can write about it and share it with others.

Neat! Your poetry is great - I love the strong, clear imagery. If you wanted, you could add personification - if blankets "hug," for example, you could incorporate this feeling of safetly into your poem. Good job!
