Cars On A Highway

Poem By Black Moonlight

Hundreds of cars
rushing faster then life was meant to be.
A man stands
on the side of the road,
watching them fly by.
A truck driver smokes a cigarette
and dangles his beefy hand out a window.
A blonde woman in a convertible
screams into her cellphone.
An overweight lady fusses over her dog
and crams donuts in her mouth.
A man with a bushy mustache
fiddles with a broken radio.
A woman with tired eyes
turns to yell at her bickering children.
The man on the sidewalk
observes them all.
A snapshot of their lives.
Scanning the back cover of a book,
but never reading the story.
The man tilts his head, amused.
He turns and walks away,
the morning fog swallows him up.
He is never seen again.

The Girl

her feet pound the stairs
she climbs higher and higher
loud shouts echo off the cement walls behind her
the girls breath is coming in ragged gasps

Alone And Lonely

Walking alone.
I lift my head and see my friends,
far ahead.
I shout to them.

Crimson Rain

Standing in the rain,
blood streams down my face.
Ice water drips off my hair…
my bare arms are blue with cold.


Black despair dripping downwards,
eyes burning with unshed tears.
Sliver glints in the feeble light.
There’s no way out…


A round ball of fire sinks lower in the sky,
painting the atmosphere with streaks of crimson and gold.
The colours fade and onlookers turn away from the image in the sky,
shivering as a cold wind penetrates their thin jackets.
