Silver River

The black and white banks
Of the river that flows
Past buildings neglected
And lit by moons glow.

The silver light burning
From lunar’s harsh burn
Casts shades of dark pitch
In which lovers are spurned.

Down moonlit cold paths
Where the dreamers may roam
Could be seen kindred spirits
Who just want to atone.

A chill from the water
Seeps slowly within
While the moon in its heaven
Shows wanderers sin.

Come walk with me angel
And see the dark sights
We’ll ponder the dreams
Painted by the moonlight.

    That is just an awesome verse! Made the hair on my arms stand up!

      Thank you – a physical reaction to my words is, as I’ve said before, the highest compliment that can be paid. Thank you for being so positive and supportive about my work.

  2. I like this very much. It’s very haunting in portrayal of the scene and sentiment. I can feel the chill from the river and discern the images in the silver light. A lovely piece calling to all the senses.

    I will be perfectly honest and say it mentioned the moon a few too many times for my liking but then i don’t tend to like repetition. πŸ™‚ still love your work thou!

      I only just realised that – it’s mentioned in every verse in one way or another! But then I think that keeps the while ‘silver’ thing running through it. Thank you as always for your critique, it’s always welcome πŸ™‚
