You may cry to the moon

Let tears run

And entreaties scream in the air

Tear your hair

Despair as you have never done

And cannot do again

But there are certain things or people

That you may not have

For each it is a different loss

A different pain of heart

In spite of what you have acquired

A wound forever picked at

Never healed

Always on your mind

That one thing that you lack

      The journey which brings each of us to where we will be is filled with the lessons of yesterday, perculiar to us in person but spreads behind us as in a tapestry of revelation telling us it is the same for all but the few.
      Oh to be of those few.

    • L. B. Mek

      let it all go
      for as morning arrives, you'll soon realise
      it'll all be dew stains, in no time..
      Thanks for sharing, dear poet

      That one thing that I lack is a full comprehension of the idiocy and foolishness which exists in the community like a virus - and for that I think I will howl the moon rather than cry....

      Great song and a great poem about someone who lacks healing.
