The Moon I Missed

Rating: 5.0


The Moon I Missed

The Sun asked me, ‘Are you happy’
I told ‘Not at all’
He exclaimed, ‘Why, why, why’
I replied, ‘Counting the stars, I never knew there is a Moon’
The Sun asked me, ‘Why are you concerned about the Moon’
I replied, ‘I want, I love, give me the Moon’
He insulted me, ‘Go to the hell’
I said yes, yes
At the cost of heaven and hell, give me the Moon
The Sun grew pale and told, kill me and take
I replied, sorry, sorry, you take her and I die

A very good poem. I stayed in Tinsukia for nearly four years, how I wish I knew where you were.

The imagery is fantastic and the dialogue with the sun is unique. In the end it is sacrifice and sadness pervading the atmosphere. Enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing. A quote: The Sun grew pale and told, kill me and take I replied, sorry, sorry, you take her and I die
