A Child in the Dark

Post any poetry here. It's just too hard to define "inspired" in this context, so we will settle for that which inspires.

A Child in the Dark

Post by overmind » Fri Jun 13, 2014 3:54 am

I wish my words could wash away your tears.
I wish upon a star that has held you so long.
I wish my stretched arms could console your given form.
I wish under the moon of waning face.

You wish under a night glowing with charm.
You wish my words could reach upon welcoming ears.
You wish under a moon rising in triumph high.
You wish my arms could warm your trodden form.

Again I whispered nothings of sweetness.
Again I rose above the midnight stars to sing.
Again you wished upon this blackened form of mine.
Again you whispered for another chance.

Never again do I speak of leaving.
Never again do I let go of your stretched arms.
Never again do you speak of your loneliness.
Never again do you wish in the night.

This meter goes 10/12/12/10. Bit of an odd one. As you can see, there are patterns of language throughout. I don't know the specifics, it just turned out this way, so create your own story I guess.
