Melencholy Poem

Oh moon, shine not your bloody light on me tonight. Hide, hide your conceited face from me. What know you of my plight?

You have only to answer the cosmic command. To dance the simple jig of physics. To never stop what you have always done.

Yet I must, every day, Understand my role anew, Find my lonely way again.

And still you mock me With your self-contended grin! Away I say! Stop the laughing!

Age after age you smile At the faults of those of flesh and blood Secure in your simple path.

Your brothers mimic you in their security. Your sisters even hide their eyes from us. We wander along in our impotence.

Oh moon, you are but an enigma. A vision of our projection. A part of, and yet apart from our dream.

Yours is a strong original voice...all I have to do is read, "To dance the simple jig of physics" to see the quality of the writing. But the poem is much more than one good line or two - "Your brothers mimic you in their security" is simple excellent - it is as a whole compelling and forceful and very worthwhile. Fine writing. Dafydd, welcome to AuthorsDen.
My best to you
