I Can'T See The Moon - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

the thin fibers that hold me together strain against the tautness
the weight becomes unbearable
and I can't see the moon

following the sting, and clouded by haze of my own making, I seek it
that feeling of discovery, of self worth
and I can't see the moon

wisps of smoke shelter me through the torrents
lost in agony, inconsolable
and I can't see the moon

darkness crowds the dark thoughts
suddenly you are out of reach
and I can't see the moon

life is just an illusion darling
but I'll believe you if you tell me it isn't so
yet I still can't see the moon

I lost my trust, but never should have
I am not the one you feel
and I can't see the moon

I thought I found you, but you weren't there at all
somehow you forget I am next to you. your beauty obscures
and I still can't see the moon

all the anger I have felt slips through my fingertips
live while you can
because I can't see the moon

paradise awaits on the other corner of life, knowing
if you love a lot you'll find strength to sing alone
and perhaps you will see the moon

there are a thousand things I want to say
but I can only think of one.

yet I still can't see the moon.
