Lonely Moon

The Moon will shine,
Without your smile,
But no longer shall it be,
A Moon that shines for me,

A lovely poem with wonderful rhymes. Very skilfully constructed.
So sad yet beautifully written poem of lost love.

A fine poem, Sandra. The trope is good and the last two lines are clinchers.
Sandra, you bring out the face of the moon. It is a lonely and soulful presence. Thank you for your comments on my poem.
Wow! When I see a poem with Moon in the title, I go for it like a hungry guppy. Your poem was a real reward. I love it. Everything about the rhythm, syntax, meaning, emotionality, etc..I give it a ten
" " " Oh Moon alone, Made out of stone, Rotating in the sky, A phantom ship, No life to grip, No tears to even cry, No one can feel your loneliness, As deeply as can I" " " " " .... personified moon and sad moon for being lonely... Beautiful allegory...thanks
" " Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon, Poor orphan in the sky, Detached from mother Earth, Your barren surface has no life, No hope, no love, no mirth" " " Loneliness brings pangs of love..
The Moon is cold, So I am told, And winter's here for me, When love is gone, There is no Sun, The Moon is all I see.... Beautiful...Sun stands for Love.
" " " The Moon will shine, Without your smile, But no longer shall it be, A Moon that shines for me, Gone are the days, When you'd just stay, So close, smiling at me." " " " Moon stands for Love....
Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon, Poor orphan in the sky, Such love poem like this I haven't read ever anywhere. The love story of the sun and the moon are profoundly expressed. The moon can't shine without sun is the fact that we all knew but you have painted the fact in such a way that when one will read think that a lonely love awaits for his lover from long time.You personified the moon as girl who is still and has no feelings to express.Great work.
Oh lonely Moon, my lonely Moon, Poor orphan in the sky, Detached from mother Earth, Your barren surface has no life, No hope, no love, no mirth....great expression! An invaluable piece of poetry! My pleasure reading it again and again!
A Moon that shines for me, Gone are the days, When you'd just stay, So close, smiling at me. Moon is there but it does not feel the same confidant of my love, no more. Friend of sleepless nights no more.
oh moon no longer will you be lonely for Sandra wrote a poem for you, and for you only
Someone at my school plagiarize this and when he read this to the class the teacher said she was going to cry. Good Job!
An eloquent heartbreaker. Pure poetry!
Nice poem and I love poems about the moon although I think its really about heartbroken love
This is one of the most outstanding gems I have read for some time! I will add it to my favorite poem list! Great work, Sandra!
A magnificent piece of poetry! My great pleasure reading this beautiful work time and again!
The moon... a beloved theme in times of longing. I have never heard it quite like this though. Unto my favourites.
