Dark moon arrives....


  Dark moon arrives...


I see faces and spaces,
In unfamiliar places.
Each breath is the last,
That will touch the past.
Every day that I've made,
Isn't used, I've just laid.
Time now moves to its end,
I'm alone without friend.
No more this life of stone and glass,
No more a time for forgiveness
I see your face upon this pillow crease,
Not Recognised but somehow known.
I see reflection and rejection,
In a mirrors required imitation.
The end will come soon,
I can see the darkened moon.
No warmth to heat my inner soul
But soon a million fires glow.

  • Comment from author about the poem: Apologies if today's poem Is a little dark, I am going through 24 hours without sight, a blindfold I'm wearing until tomorrow, my wife Is writing what I'm dictating.... I'm doing it for a friend... It has been the most difficult thing I have ever done and it's only been A few hours.... I will write a poem About it tomorrow.... a most Amazing thing has happened though I can actually see the words I'm Writing instead of them being in My head.....

    It is a valiant experiment you undertake, probing how the other senses step in to compensate for lack of vision. Kudos on the poem and the experiment both, P.H.!

    • P.H.Rose

      Thank you so much Louis
      Having to have my wife
      Write for me is the hardest
      Thing at the moment as
      She does not like poetry
      And the toilet is bloody

        A temporary blindfold can be a valuable experiment and to think you see words by other senses is amazing P.H. - looking forward to your posting tomorrow.

        • P.H.Rose

          Thank you Fay....
          I'm going to post it shortly
          I'm still trying to focus my
          Eyes properly
