A Sad Song

The crevaces of the night
howled it's hollow song
into the ears of my good night
and my arsenal of words
that can put creases in the sky
trembled like a vulture
singing along your cries

You sounded like the rain
the monotony born
by the drumming noise
and the crystal groans

You sounded like smoke
moseying my atmosphere
and the cobwebs inside
my defunct clocks
and dislimed chadeliers

Your just a sad song
in a slow metronome
treading the lines of oblivion
and I wish could try
but my page is lost
in a schism of good nights
so I howled my lamentations
into the crevaces of the night

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
