The Moon and Me


The moon..
It’s full tonight
Amidst the dark night
Without a star in sight.

Me...
Out for a walk
Without anyone to talk
Wondering around the block

The moon..
First peeking behind a cloud
Then there he is full and proud
Inquiring why my heart is bowed

My heart is bleeding
My hope is fading
My faith is crumbling
To the dark night I’m slowly disappearing

My lady, my dearest princess
Despair has gripped your heart in darkness
Let not your spirit wallow in emptiness
For I can see the road before you filled with happiness

Let me light your path through this vagueness
Let me build you new hope as a fortress
Until you heal your faith strong and dauntless
Until your heart can fly again, soaring the sky unrelentless.



I’m glad you’re here dear moon
I’m glad you asked me why
I’m glad you made the dark sky
A bit brighter, a bit less sly

I promise you this for sure
I will heal my heart, I will endure
I will see your promise of the future
And I will rise and soar with you forever and more.

I was awed by the beauty of the moon one night. It has inspired me to write a short poem to express the depth of wonder I feel when it's at its fullest. The way it reaches out to the melancholy of the night, waiting, foreboding. Yet .. I feel no fear but instead a feeling of lightness, an overwhelming emotion of peace and tranquility.

...hehe... i'm being sentimental...not a comedian. LOL ... in between those lines, although in all seriousness, there are 'manananggal", "tikbalang" (creatures of the night), peeking and grinning at me ready to pounce when ever I give them the signal...hehe.

But really!! I am serious!

very nice lines, em...
the poem sends a lot vivid images

but the 'manananggal' and 'tikbalang' is another story. or is it a metaphor that you intended to omit in the poem? :)

thanks Juleste!

hehe...my mind is like a stage... i was creating this image of all seriousness of a romantic night when behind the curtains the comics custumed in night creatures were trying to get into the picture! LOL they are making me laugh.

you must think i'm totally crazy and hopeless....hehe

Thanks Lawstude! Nature has a huge effect on me. I seemed to be more creative and inspired when i'm in nature. That's why i'm hopelessly hooked to your nature images.

thanks again for visiting and the beautiful compliment. Very much appreciated.
