Moon O Moon

You shine so bright,
Giving the blind night,
Tearing apart with the light,
A smile just at your sight,

In the haste you receede,
Though we still have your need,
As you set in the west in speed,
On my knees I am and plead,

Stay over, as we love to see,
In your beauty we love to be,
Awestruck with our eyes,
Enjoying the cool breeze,

Nights are dark without you,
Miss the passion I have for you,
I never realized, I never knew,
Still there is one beautiful than you!

The Moon at night
The Moon at night

As I was about to sleep, I could see the moon through the window and couldnt stop myself from writing this poem.

    Nice lines… men see moon as female.. wonder if women tend to see it as male.. 😉

      Blognostic, welcome to my blog!

      I never heard or felt Moon as female, but an object of beauty. And as far as I know, women too feel it the same way. 🙂

    hi hemal!

    first of all, great work! but i wonder if you really need to try to rhyme the sentences ? i see sparks of poetic capability taken down by the need to rhyme.maybe try writing freely the next time, paying more attention to descriptions, metaphor, word choice , figures of speech.the reason i am saying that rhyming can hamper word-choice, unless you are a seasoned poet, try to stay away from rhyming and go for other, better things.

    on the whole a nice poem, but you could do way better! wishes!

      Hey Nishkam, welcome to my blog!

      Thanks for the comments and I am sure I will keep these in mind. For me, Rhymes keep the poem going. Many a times I keep getting lost on words and when I use the rhyme, I find it easy for me to compose. You are right, that limits my choices of words at times…

    btw hemal, kal raat ka moon aisa nahi tha :P……i mean the pic shud hv depicted yday’s moon 😀 😛 😉

    1. Hemal Shah says

      Yeahhhhh… coz by the time it clicked me to take a pic, it was already setting in the west and behind a building, so couldn’t capture the actual one. Had to create this photoshopped one.
