Just a Phase of the Moon

A false
promise cascades 
over black satin in
skies just beyond the midnight hour
gone deaf.

Silver 
strings play silent,
old, memories waking 
a long forgotten orchestra 
once mute.

The chant
of heartbeats thump
as thunderous thoughts churn
crescendos of mixed emotions
that scorch.

The tails
of fallen stars
wag their cleft tongues and taunt
for dead wishes of love to be
revived.

Such sad
golden eyes are
blind and yet still see all.
Each lie dashes the truth and kills
a dream.

The truth
is prisoner
in lairs of midnight lies.
Serpents coil around tomorrow's
moonbeams.

The ghost
of deception 
binds the spirit but it's
just a phase of the midnight moon;
and me.

This star
will not fall from
the midnight sky because
it floats on confidence, not love;
not lies.

Moon in Phase

Wax and wane/ constant change
Tides will rise/ tides fall the same
With moon in phase/ bodies spin
Tides roll in/ tides ebb again
Revolve the earth/ elliptic line
Moonbeams shine/ signs of time
Moon on water/ Heavenly Father
Good tidings heard/ no more wander
In five moons/ coming soon
Eclipse of sun/ in the noon?
Red moon glow/ return of Son
Light is come/ darkness none
No moon in phase/ no sun but days
Constant tide/ one source of rays
Yet all the same/ tides roll in
Tides rise again/ no body spins

In Phase With The Moon

In phase with the moon
The mockingbird steals a nest
To plant her eggs
This candlelight of deception
