Red Moon - Poem by Daniel McDonagh

The moon was the colour of blood,
Stars dripped like tears from the sky,
Fires danced on the face of the ocean
As the sun lay distant from our eyes.

A child prayed by a lonely rainbow
As it’s colours and beauty began to fade,
The rainclouds were gathering, storms were in place
While temples & shrines disappeared in the shade.

Love was but an ancient memory,
A memory that demons stole,
And we stand within the land of purgatory
While the devil has consumed and stolen our soul.
