the Moon has overcome
Brett C. McDermid

the Moon has overcome
the sun has lost this war
with battles raging on
the earth now spins

in silence

sound is far away
from night’s dark cloaking shade
whisper solitude
breath is all

in silence

i try to calm my fear
of waking night’s dark soldiers
the creaking and the twisted bough
i cannot hide from darkness
with one large eye
it watches this land
now fill with tears

i see shadow’s silhouettes
in absent light they dance

silently

the earth is hung with darkness
a lightless creature glowing
the victor clear demanding
the Moon is riding high
