I stand in the darkness wondering

if I am the only one gazing up at the moon,

the blinking lights of a tower pointing her out.

The silence is penetrating, as there isn’t

even the sound of a cricket chirring.

Moon’s round shape reminds

me of a cyclops eye gazing down,

half closed in isolated boredom.

Does she wonder why I stand here

by myself gazing back at the single eye?

Two solitary beings separated by miles,

each wondering about the other.

I extend a hand, wanting to draw her down

to share my isolated spot on earth,

but she remains in her heavenly home

and I remain lonely.

  1. worlds apart, souls in two different worlds, i could feel the pain and the loneliness, coz I am often like that… 😦 could really relate!

    very nicely penned verses!

  2. Yes, I like this poem. No hyperbole, no saccharine wordiness, a simple poem giving immediate access to your thoughts when writing it.

    Well done.
