Just a poem, limericks in a series.

As the sky whispers it's by and by's

A saddened tune cries.

It's a world in need

That tends to bleed

When heaven tells it's ugly lies.


The moon forms its long goodbys

As Scorpio begins it's rise

Across the sky

Like a lullaby

Then, again, the saddened tune cries.


Those tears of yesterdays are shallow

Like memories hide in mocking shadow.

Like road-trips along the coast

We eat the words that are full of boast

Casting aside, those of the straight narrow.

A well written poem, that to me definitely seems to have an air of melancholy.

Thanks Hul, I think I should have been a Blues song writer, but I got no rhythm.
