New Moon

Spread the love

Between nothingness and pain
I chose to linger, and like new moon
cradled ebony skies.

Why is the new moon partially
hidden, I wonder as emotions gave way
to impossible dreams.

Perhaps like humans, she too
has demons, who threaten to claw
into the subconscious mind.

I glance once again, admiring the
new moon, her power and strength
before finally resigning to bed.

    Oh! Magnificent!
    Wisdom.
    I believe we and she are indeed alike, refusing to see the sun at times and at other times shining bravely and wildly.

  2. Xenia Tran says:

    A beautiful poem Sanaa and I especially love the way you connect with the moon in your final stanza with ‘I glance once again, admiring the new moon, her power and strength’, accepting the inspiration she is offering you xxx

  3. Kim M. Russell says:

    I love the opening lines:
    ‘Between nothingness and pain
    I chose to linger’
    it sounds so sad. I also enjoyed:
    ‘I glance once again, admiring the
    new moon, her power and strength
    before finally resigning to bed’.

  4. Gayle Walters Rose says:

    Perhaps as the moon moves through her different phases her strength and fortitude waxes and wanes as the tides that she creates. Food for thought, Sanaa.

  5. Amaya says:

    The moon being haunted by demons like humans are is such a wondrous thought. Ties the push and pull of moon and earth together even more, like two friends with a shared secret.
