“Since You Are Gone”


Blue Moon

“Since You are Gone”

I know my hours stray since you are gone.

Alone, among the silent clouds each day.

I know our separation just as strong

as sinking sun grabs night; drowns in its sway.

I know what darkness is since left alive.

My lethargy begins when you appear.

It stabs the conscience, hard, as I survive.

Cold logic and my reason brings no cheer.

I know about your dying; it’s a fact.

You were adrift on rivers filled with dreams

and, reconciled, you formed a friendly pact.

Somnolent , you were tricked by him it seems.

I know more of a black void we descend.

Apology to death we living tend.

Write a poem that states the things you know.  The things you “know” of course, might be facts, or they might be a little bit more like beliefs. Hopefully, this prompt will let your poem be grounded in specific facts, while also providing room for more abstract themes and ideas.
