Deserted Moon


can you see her through that sad look in her eyes
looking with emptiness upon the darkened skies

so many thoughts came pondering on her mind
yet failed to understand how can her heart be so blind

why do the stars seem to be hiding from the moon
would they forget to share their brightness even soon

when darkness spreads to smother the world with silence
she stood still like the moon that lost the lights radiance

she raised her body in spirit to mourn the deafening nights
underneath the moonbeams in the shattered ray of lights

slipping away to flow into the deepest core to comprehend
beyond what is said and done, the hearts hurt can pretend

like the moon that shines at night even with clouds darkness
though deserted, her smile remains as sweet with emptiness

snuggled within the coldness, found the warm glow of spring
her face bright as the moon, her smiles, all happiness bring

from slumber, woke up from a dream of her moonless light
in solitaire, the deserted moon awaits her starry, starry night
