Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Crack Goes The Moon


She said I don't want to
but I am leaving you
I cain't repair the crack
In your moon

Somebody is lying
Somebody is dying
My cracked moon
Is tumbling

Driving slowly
Nowhere back to all
Those failing ways
Before graduation day

The guitar wails away
Thinking of the times
When before my moon cracked
On graduation day

Go on walking down there
On a beach dark in moonlight
I lost another one
Crack goes the moon

    The metaphor of cracked moon is unique.According to Indian astrology, a person who has much influence of moon, he becomes lunatic.Loved. (Report) Reply

    Everyone knows the moon is made of green cheese - the sun grills it and sticks it back together again.
    Enjoyable poem. (Report) Reply

    A poetic charm has slowly been built around stanza after stanza and the impact is great though the moon experiences a crack. (Report) Reply

    Creative~ backed with a great imagination~ in your ways
    of comparison, or shared notions, in all your poems! ! !
    and I love the moon.....as well as the stars....and the sun....etc.
    But a cracked moon? Who would've thought that up except you! ! !

    Each time I read this I really am trying to take parts seriously, but I can't. I find myself laughing again. And wanting to suggest sunbathing at a nude beach. There I said it, I feel better...... (Report) Reply

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
