One Dismal Day

Poem By Little Star

The veins of lightning
In unusual brilliance
Sewn from the dark angry sky
The distant laughter
Of the thunder
Like sounds of thousand horses
Hoofing above the earth
Even the fiercest hyenas
Hide themselves in gloomy caves
Humans shield themselves
Under their shuttered dwellings
Too frightened to watch and listen
To the cracks of one dismal day

Comments about One Dismal Day

LIttle Star, you have exploded into brilliance in this fine poem of vivid story architecture with variegated intense shades of charcoal grey, silver sparkle. I can even smell the atmosphere and apprehension. Love your unique timing/rhythms in all of your work. I've read and enjoyed several of your poems. Cy
I love the visual and audio senses portrayed in your poem.

Just stay around as a friend
Until I find the strength to stand on my own again
Never leave my side and let me alone
Now that I needed some shoulder to lean on

If we were meant for each other
Why should I lose you now
Why can't I fight for our love
I feel hopeless and alone

A Lot To Learn

Did I ever fail you
When you wanted me around
I came running, almost panting
Wishing not to lose a single moment

A Moon Without A Face

Must I say goodbye to you
After you told me
I can never ever see your face
I feel the pain creeping into my heart
