A Lover's Cry


A Lover’s Cry

By Emma Doyon

Inspired by Denise Levertov


“Scraps of moon

tattered on the ground.”

bloodied and beaten

by the sound 

of a lover’s cry.


Drips of galaxy 

pooling the in the corner’s of the room,

languid and heavy

by the gloom

of a soulless life.


Shards of sun

litter the walls

frantic and jittery,

by the calls

of a desperate woman


All unheard,

by a loving goddess

in hopes of a revelation,

for her child.
