Poem :: You shine like the moon


Bright and beautiful you shine
Like the moon in the night
Your pseudo chastity, reflecting
In its false glow.
Oh! You shine like the moon.

You stole the glory of the Night
Your halo broke its might
She suffered long and cried
No star ever in its sight.
Empty and alone in the galaxy
When the Night called for its love
It came upon the monster, moon
A parasite all the way through.
And cold was its vacant luminescence
Like your heart and its selfish desires
Self-serving, feeding off the sun
Projecting an image of sublime conscience.

Oh! You shine like the moon.
May glorious be your days, you fool
Who exists only in dark gloom
And, know this with certainty
The Night lives on without your bloom.

-Asra
