Put My Fears to Sleep

The stars are mute tonight

The sky is in a silent phase

The wind has lost its music

And the moon has no story to tell

This taciturn aphonic night

Is what my heart abhors

So sing me a lullaby, will you?

And put my fears to sleep.

  1. A gorgeous poem! I loved your lines and diction use. But this particular line stood out to me for its shock and awe factor of simplicity: β€œThe wind has lost its music” ~Kelsey
