The Moon Cries - Poem by Udaya R. Tennakoon

In the backyard of the earth
The solitary moon was sitting
In the dark with a hidden secret
The moon cries before it puts on

Wiping out tears get touched on the cheeks
Walks in the sky having tired with bored mood
Clouds cover and stars divert
Slept night is blind for hidden reality

No one feels and knows
Beauty doesn’t tell anything
Lamenting heart is a flame in the lamp
Glass of light is a wall of the chimney
Outside world has a dream in the night

The day time at the dark
The moon sees the light
Beings are on earth
Wrapped up in an animosity

Faces laugh and inside sword snares
Collected values are used for blast
A red line ribbon of river intercrosses
On the dead bodies of harmful battles

Creatures sink in light of the dark
The moon suffers in the dark of the light
Waves of the seas haunt for a width
The warm of the earth is the hate of the man.
