Crescent and I

Her curve
My smile

Her craters
My scars

Her desolation
My loneliness

Her neighbours
My crowd

Her dark side
My dark secrets

Her borrowed light
My brittle longings

Her waning
My charade

Her exile
My penance

Her consistent cycle
My growth factor

We never get tired!


This is a free verse relating the pain and relief of a woman to the crescent.
