The Grieving Luna

H.Sanbika is medically oriented by degree though she's not practicing it currently, Her passion on scribbling thoughts dragged her here.

“The moon is a loyal companion.

It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.

Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”

― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me


The Grieving Luna

She's staring at the sky tonight

It's dark no trace of light

A longing grips her heart

Slowly tearing her apart

It used to be there

To drink her tears and clear the blur

To wash her wounds and so to heal

Every time she chants her great appeal

Now it's gone what's she to do

Her tears, like river they flow and flow

But seldom do they reach her hollow eyes

They've built a heart of stone and ice

She bleeds so deep might be for keeps

She begs so hard, she wants to sleep

Fair maiden with a serene face

Let me rest in your sweet embrace
