A Letter To The Moon | A New Poem

The past few weeks have been a bit strange for me, sort of had a momentary mental breakdown and  was trying to piece myself back together. Now I’m feeling better I wanted to write something that represents a lot of the insomniac thoughts that often occur during my difficult moments.

Enjoy.

A Letter To The Moon

Dear Moon

I know you must leave shortly,

But

Don’t leave me just yet.

My eyes are heavy and will not close,

And you are … enlightening.

All is silent but the creaking of my bed,

As I rustle and hope for sleep,

And you stay there, patient,

Amongst a dark sky,

Shining brighter than the stars around you.

Your light creeps into a world closed for rest,

As I slowly abandon my hopes of sleep tonight,

I perch on my bed and admire the paintings you create.

Slipping into a hallucinatory playback of moments forgotten;

People forgotten, Places barely remembered, Memories deleted.

It’s okay,

I like it,

I feel as if I am on every drug conceivable

And your prescence is slowing the world down 

But

Don’t leave me just yet

Let me enjoy this brief slow motion

Because

My eyes are heavy and will not close

And you are .. enlightening.

 

Your Dear Friend

Liam.

Let me know what you think!
