Two Dark Moons

Have You Been There ?

In a world so different than what we know and love

Where every day it rains

Your body stays achy with a cold chill

There are no skies

Only a white fog that traps us

No different than an animal that can't get away

Suffering in excruciating pain

Madness can easy follow

Unbalanced and quirky

Unsafe and jumpy

Desperately seeking

As uncontrollable urges plague us

We see other people from a distance

Their sadness is easily recognized

Worn not for comfort or style

It's heavy like armor that once was used to protect

Is only bulky, heavy out of date

As we heat up from the inside

Only to find a misery that has slipped inside

Our eyes are slightly shut and begging for more sleep

We stay victims

As the real thief and abuser

Disappears into the dark corners

Home of fear and blind terror

Waiting to strike

This time with more vengeance and anger


Let the aching head pound

For it will soon tell you it's own story

One different than the one told

Where life has it's sand traps and lost balls

It is the same life of beautiful greens and impossible shots

That we witness and scream from our lungs

Did you see that shot



As we watch in awe

What does happen

When all the conditions are right

Perfect in an imperfect world

We can walk with our back slouched and our head buried between our shoulders

At the same time we can pick up any cell phone and check the time

Joining the human race in every endeavor

Sharing our joys as well as our sorrows

Learning the difference

Keeping them apart

Even though they seem to be welded together

We make the deciding factor

To be carried away in glory or to be dragged against our will

I will always choose

An abundance of energy and love

That pumps faster than air from any air hose

Ready to ride with the wind on my back

Pushing me along faster than I think I can go

Rising up from the deepest hole

All of us together

Can get up early

Calming the craziness down

When things feel like they are ripping apart

They only need to be fixed

Mended and blended

For as many times as it takes

How are you feeling ?

If the answer nothing on the good side of life

Then we have to talk

If it is like a platter of good food being served and you brought your appetite

What are you waiting for ?

I'm not getting any younger

Let your innovation and creativity glow

For it will lead you to a new direction

From there you will see

Where you need to go

Wow, Dream On, this is an epic poem from you. Much different to what you usually write but very impressive. I think I have been to that other world at times but prefer this one. Well done.

Jodah In life there are so many changes we experience. It is important to take a step back to view the world. Remembering what's important and finding the good. Sharing life with the people we care about and looking towards a bright and beautiful future. Thank you so much for reading and sharing.

Have to second Jodah's words here. I thought you were talking about the flu at first.

Shanmarie Some of the symptoms in the beginning of the poem sure sound like the flu. Being down and out. Then the end rising above it all. It is one of life's biggest struggles. You may use the poem any way you think it fits. When people struggle with their health it is a hard battle. Thank you for reading and sharing.

Most thought provoking. I have found that lately it makes it easier for me to be creative by totally opening up to a subject and using my full imagination. Hope this week is bringing you lots of creativity.
