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.

  19. 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’.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Kim πŸ˜€ so glad you enjoyed it ❀️

  20. Bev says:

    As are we, the moon is periodically reduced to basics, only to call on her resilience and rebuild to her full self! Great poem.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Beverly πŸ˜€ so good to see you ❀️

  21. 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.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Definitely πŸ™‚ thanks for stopping by, Gayle ❀️

  26. 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.
