Do you look at me
Like I gaze at you?
Sending your way, for hours
An invisible ray of tangled thoughts –
Fading silhouettes of eternal scars
Frozen tears clung to happy reminiscence
Dreams muddled with fears
And yet a fluttering hope
Crowning every disappointment
Travel for miles, Oh Moon!
Lone amongst a million stars
Do you feel the way I do?
Sending my way, for hours,
Your luminous rays, mystic and cold,
(And colder, your substance)
Glorious messengers of your odious seclusion,
Seek companionship in trivial mortals,
Fail and hide in shame, every night
Behind sinister mists and eerie clouds
Continually, before sunrise
And return unsatiated every morn.
