Little King of Sorrows


This Blue Moon


My heart is already broken! No more damage can you do!
In the symphony of madness, I sang the same to you.
But in this dueling duet of agony, who was teaching who?
This familiar song I thought I wrote, now claimed by someone new.
Who is this muse before me? Where did she learn this tune?
This melody I locked inside, revealed by this blue moon.
In bitterness I heed her cry, lost in this monsoon.
Joyous songs were not for us, we sang along too soon.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I don't expect everyone to understand my poems. Some are broader than others. This story took place in my life, under a full moon, as two people both in pain of losing loved ones, refused to use empathy to resolve a fight, and instead used the pain caused by death as a wall of pride. So the story ended for us.

    Thank you for sharing that with me... I now read it both ways and never would have thought of that. I will leave it as is, but thank you for giving me a new prospective on it: -) (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
