The Man in the Moon

The sun is distant now; lowering its gaze upon me to a mere blanket of obscurity. 
The sea is calm but still tantalisingly sinister and threatening. 

The silence is hostile, I am cold and alone - each breath I take is an intricate requisite.
I am sceptical, burdened with misplaced ideals, unconvinced I will ever unearth the vitality within myself. 

Kneeling on the edge of my own existence, I wait for a voice to utter my path,
The man in the moon offers me a reluctant and hesitant grin as he watches over me. I'm too incompetent to counter the gesture. 

My inability in offering a tear is poignant for us both - He understands me. It is beautiful.

    Things will get better with the passage of time. Nice descriptiveness in this melancholy piece.

    Hi Leigh, a lot of sadness in this poem, when I read it I felt like an Astronaut being cast adrift from the Mother ship, endlessly floating not able to re-connect. Very moving and beautifully written, regards Kevin x
