The Moon I Missed - Poem by Dhiren Doley

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

    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
