Oh, Moon

Oh, moon! 
I know 
You are not 
Addicted to loneliness 

Be defiant 
For once 
Let the power 
Of closeness 
Scrap through your filth 

Lay bare 
Your reservations 
Next time you meet the stars
Open your heart 
Let your silver streaks talk 
To each other 
While space 
Keeps you stay apart. 

Let no cloud 
Dampen your spirit 
Make memories 
With each visit. 

Oh, moon 
Give wings to your soul 
Let it suffer 
Let it soar!

  2. A different take on the moon ..as if she/he is someone who is aloof. Nice.

  7. Here is me thinking that the Moon flirts and loves us here on Earth sometimes shining sometimes hiding playing with us and helping us with our romances!

    1. It does that quite too often so thought about helping it once.... maybe some hidden muse it has...

  11. A beautiful poem and inspiring considering the presence of the blue moon at the end of last month. The poem as a spiritual and raw feeling to it.
