Out Of Focus

by ArtGal

looking through
an old camera lens
the universe
out of focus
no shining stars
to wish upon
a child's dream gone
awake under covers

moonbeams vanished
no rays to climb
no way to find
the sleeping clouds
that should appear
in early morn
the brilliant sun
in total shadow
I question now
will we have
a tomorrow?

sweat upon brow
fast beating heart
wake me
from this slumber
catching my breath
I realize
this nightmare
Dean put me under

dear poet friend
I ask for one favor
would you post
your most chilling
of writes
after humans retire
for the night?

I want the stars
the sun and the moon
to shine
and give light
as they do
day and night

for God to be real
and in focus


Free verse, limited punctuation. When we write, sometimes there's an unsuspected ending. Well, this was one of mine! Sorry Dean, I love your work, but at times you scare the hell out of me, lol. Dear friend, no need to ask, but this just came to me! Thanks for the art work by Chart.
