No. 209

The Death of the moon. By CpSingleton © 2014

The moon, pale and forlorn,
Peeks through night’s
Misty, silent veil; tears welling.

He could feel the gentle pull
Of his vibrant mother
Gradually slackening.

Like a fearful, dangling man
On the razor precipice by
Only a single sweaty palm

‘Tween a painful, final outcome
And the warm comfort of
Safety’s tight grip.

The moon realises his own
Long forgotten mortality.

He knew his nights and his
Beautiful mother’s days were
Bowing to a rapturous applause:

The crowd on their swaying
Feet, crying out for one
Last fabulous monumental encore.

Would the quiet single and
Arrogant multicellular organisms,
Who roam without conscience

Or remorse upon his mother’s
Colourful landscapes come
Together to wave a last goodbye?

Or would they wrap themselves
In fear; running wildly in a futile
Search for their non-existent escape?

Would they understand the
Sorrowful pain that smashed,

About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.

  1. I’ve noticed that the moon seems to be an obsession with many poets. Trying to understand the commonality. I suck at understanding metaphors. Nice piece of work, though, Cp. Cheers 😊

  2. I was trying to draw on the philosophy that everything is connected. The moon to the earth; humans to the earth, and the lack of understanding with today’s human. Or at least some of them.
    Cheers, Big Lazza, hope all’s well.
