    Mood: The Usual
      
    One song can spark a moment,
    One flower can wake the dream.
    One tree can start a forest,
    One bird can herald spring.

    One smile begins a friendship,
    One handclasp lifts a soul.
    One star can guide a ship at sea,
    One word can frame the goal.

    One vote can change a nation,
    One sunbeam lights a room
    One candle wipes out darkness,
    One laugh will conquer gloom.

    One step must start each journey.
    One word must start each prayer.
    One hope will raise our spirits,
    One touch can show you care

    One voice can speak with wisdom,
    One heart can know what's true,
    One life can make a difference,
    You see, it's up to you!

    Hi, Mr. Bird:)

    Thanks for commenting on "Craters of the Moon."

    I'll have to admit that when I write, I don't always try to make things make sense right away. Sometimes I just write to see where the words will take me, and other times I use words I simply think sound pleasing together. But with these stream-of-consciousness pieces, I often realize they make sense anyway. Sometimes it takes years for me to figure out what I'm saying myself... very rarely is it ever complete nonsense.

    It's a good question to ask how the craters of the moon ties into the rest of the piece. I like when people ask me questions like this, because sometimes I haven't even thought to ask them myself.

    You are right that it's about deception, and that this line isn't using the metaphor in the same way as the rest. I think it's best to think of the surface of the moon as something you are traveling over. It's like saying he is the dips and valleys on my moon, the shadowy parts I can't see. Something that is marring my path, laying obstacles in it.

    I guess part of the intent was not only to show the deception, but the apparent beauty in it. After all, we wouldn't be drawn into a web of deception without some force of beckoning!

    Hope you're having a lovely day,
    Erin

    Thanks for the comment. Now you have that song stuck in my head!!!

    Anyway don't worry, there is still plenty of space in my heart, I just avoid those memories because they make me feel sick for what I did to him, tortured him with my selfishness and want to be with him.

    You have your own place in my heart, don't worry.

    Prose is not hard to write. At all. I mean, there are absolutely no rules to prose. It's its greatest quality. I would try to just remove all the line spacing and have it as one big paragraph and see how it goes. Writing is meant to experiment with.
