Strayed away from her long-lost love
she shines brightly in the night,
calling out to the one her heart yearns for.
Sometime she hides,
mourning destiny’s cruel blow.
Sometime she smiles, in a crescent,
as if oblivious to her own plight.
Fate brutally tore them apart, I imagine;
as no man of his own will would let go
of a beauty as rare as her.
The craters you see,
scars no one else can heal
but only by the love she lost.
The pain she feels,
reflected in her brilliant but sad radiance.
In the cold dark night she shows up,
flawlessly shining throughout the void of space
giving hope to all who believe in love,
while she awaits her lover’s return.

This poem is solely based on the concept of the moon trying to find her long lost love.

#Suggested and inspired by a dear friend for which I am grateful.

Happy readings 🙃

  1. “flawlessly shining throughout the void of space giving hope to all who believe in love,” yes she does and it works every time. Isn’t hers a worthy job? She reminds me of the lamp-lighter in ‘The Little Prince’ — his was a worthy job.
    Thanks for sharing, Daphny. Loved it.

      1. Crazy.. maybe hypocritical, but I encourage you to keep writing. It’s pretty awesome. And I like how you keep talking the more I keep talking lol!!

        I felt like I ran out of gas. Especially with poetry. The only stuff left was some sensualish stuff and with the oddballs I had reading I thought it best to delete..

      2. It was more of a very bad phase for me that time, I’ve given up as well thankfully I have a friend who got my back.
        Felt like a nice conversation so 😅
        You’ll get back on track like I did hopefully 😊
