Nearly 5 AM in the Morning... and I hate the night, but love it's true colors of darkness within a light so surreal you can truly feel.
The moon gather's within the stars as company to shine you. Sometimes the clouds will cover the moon, like a blanket as he lays his head to rest, that's why he's called the man on the moon, not for the person who claims to have walked it, but for the face engraved into the bright shadows and creviced surfaces surrounding the molded, circular not so perfect Moon.
Thank you Moon for keeping us company... But why do I hate the night, because your time goes faster than day. When your lover is with you and it's time to say goodnight, those are the times I despite.
The beauty of the night, is very real and wish...sometimes...could be longer. The only moment where I get to feel free. Now is time for me to try and sleep, only if I can.. some nights, my thoughts race like a mustang in the distance of a field of golden wheat grass. So I come here, to vent out...to only read my poems back at myself. I will try to sleep. Goodnight.
Its all about your day and night Dying of insomnia I'm about to use your company Too late to come here Old paper and live ink Broken machine I still play you here But I need your silence Dont dwell in silence I'm a slave for this kindless world I got cool waters in plastic You don't need to grow but I need your scent Without that I cant sleep Your reply is my alarm to wake up I'm a slave of blue screens My hand sometimes bleed over text Dont mind me cause I'll beg you to stay here Until I come.
I hate it ended so suddenly I miss the times you've made me smile When you've made me cry Gods, I miss your company!
Your words, like a symphony My favourite painter Left a crater How I miss your company!
Your kindness like a subtlety So selfless Made me helpless I do miss your company!
Now, unaccompanied I go through life In my back, a knife Your company Is lost for me! How can I be? Without somebody To hold me To sooth me To say to me "Don't you see? You're the one for me! You'll always be Special to me!" YOUR COMPANY!
You go on without me I do without you Yes, I do No more company! No more you and me! No more I love you, no more You love me! Now it's just me
Don't know what to do Oh, if I knew... Don't have a clue Life is blue... No more me and you...
Far away, some years ago A man sowed corn in his field Confident, and hopeful too Of the hearty crop he’d yield
Then birds flew in at sunset And gobbled up many seeds The farmer acted quickly To provide his family’s needs
A woven net - to trap the birds His precious seeds to preserve He caught five geese and a stork To get what they deserve
The stork said, “I am innocent I’ve eaten none of your corn Free me - I’ve done goodly deeds Since the day that I was born”
The farmer said, “that may be so But in this group you were caught You receive the punishment Of the company you’ve sought”
The same holds true for all of us The rewards you choose to reap Will likely be those given out To the company you keep

This poem was inspired by a parable on my Mom's website. I found out while writing the poem that the story is actually an Aesop's Fable.
