Hey all! I’m back with my next poem, titled “Moonlight”. Enjoy!

Trapped in this maze of tenebrous dark,
Groping about for a sliver of light stark,
The skies reflecting nothing but a pitch black night,
I pray for the shimmer of magical moonlight.

Trapped in this maze of tenebrous dark,
Tranquil yet torturous is the silence I hark,
Shivering in the cold the night ignites,
I pray for the warmth of magical moonlight.

Trapped in this maze of tenebrous dark,
As I desperately hunt of hope, a spark,
When helplessness this desolate realm kindles,
I pray for the comfort of magical moonlight.

Trapped in this maze of tenebrous dark,
Where advances the ghastly gloom like sharks,

Struggling to end my seemingly endless plight,
I yearn for the dusk of this moonless night.

-The Forgers of Fantasy

P.S: this is a metaphor for those periods in life when one finds themselves lost and in need of guidance to escape from the dark. You can say that the moonlight is symbolic for such a guide here..

  1. Beautiful Veera! I loved this. Keep writing. Aaaah but honestly. Just beautiful. And amazing. And beautiful and-
    Idk why I am repeating.
    The moon is indeed a pretty topic to write on, which makes me thing of a poem we had in our school textbook of how the moon gets more attention even though the sun does equal work and even though the moon takes a ‘holiday’ once a month yet the sun works each day.
    Loved this so much- keep writing.
    Loved ur descriptions- I can imagine a moon shining in the dark night with hazed stars!
