My Heart on the Moon


I think I left my heart on the moon,

Marooned as it were in its silver light,

The only familiar thing in a foreign land,

As there I straddled the back of a night mare,

The sharp icy stone of a mountain ridge

Above the bowl of desert all alone,

Shivering past feeling to stave off freezing,

I sent my SOS,

A plea to take me back into that fold of light.

None came but I know I went,

A fragment of my soul,

Broke off and fled away,

The innocent idealist

Who may never come back again.

One day if you travel again

Above these serried bonds of earth

To the pale bright face of our Lady Moon

And see my heart laying there,

Enshrouded in moon dust as once in veils,

Please send it back to me,

Part and parcel with the moon dust

That wrapped it for protection against the odds.

Yet warm morning light,

And one very startled young shepherd boy,

Found me there apparently intact,

The loss of my heart unseen,

And pointed me to the crystal cold water

Of a village stream in a mountain valley far below

When out from my parched throat I asked.

I know I looked like a Jinni to him.

I’ve felt like one ever since.

About Ampbreia

I'm an ex-Pentacostal, ex-Muslim, ecclectic Agnostic with slightly Wiccan leanings. I am not affiliated with any organized religion or political platform, but I do believe in magic and all things wise and wonderful. I work as an admin in a calibration lab. I've published 2 books so far this year: Lost in Foreign Passions: Love and betrayal, passion and loss in the heart of an alien land (a memoir of my time as a Muslimah and living in Iran for a year), written under my previous married name, Debra Kamza, and Dream Lover (a paranormal romance, the tale of witch that summons her favorite character out of a Bewitched spin-off and the actor who plays him as well). I'm constantly writing stories and poems, thoughts and dreams, and quite a few opinions - many of which are not popular but oh well. Bite me. I'm interested in art, animals, the paranormal, and people. I love to dance, all sorts, but have been studying belly dance since 2006 and LOVE it! I love anime too and love dressing up and going to conventions. My writing runs the gummut of historical, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and erotica. Beware: I may not be safe reading for work. Just saying....
