In Moon’s Darkness--By Janet Vick--United States

In Moon’s Darkness

The night was black, no moon in sight.
It matched the couple’s stirring fight
of pitted trust. The final end
for those who loved but could not blend.

And darkest part of trust not had,
memories of growing sad
from bud of hope, they pressed for when
a future blessed their path back then.

But shadow’s paw dug in the path
made from ditches to feed the wrath.
A chasm grew, no bridge to cross
and darkness came to rule as boss.

Two separate lives hesitate
while waiting in unhealthy state
with darkness mirrored in their eyes...
They parted ways escaping ties.

Janet lives in rural Suffolk, Virginia with her husband, Randy. She loves the fresh air and space of country living. She works as a Registered Nurse in surgery. She is a mother of one and grandmother of two.


  1. So sad when two that once loved grow apart, you capture this well.
