Howl at the Moon

Daily Prompt Challenge – The Daily Post – Howl at the Moon

“Follow your inner moonlight; don’t hide the madness.” — Allen Ginsberg
Do you follow Ginsberg’s advice — in your writing and/or in your everyday life?

I have read of wolves in George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series and watched werewolves in Twilight and Underworld movie series. I have nothing to do with that sort of thing, if it’s moonlight which starts to take control over my shape shifting stuff.

On the other hand, if there is sunlight within, why does one need moonlight, I’d ask? Should someone have moonlight every time? Is this about the dark side of someone, or the psycho side of the human behaviour? The point for this daily prompt is not specific, and there is a lot of ambiguity in what it has to mention.

For the sake of this discussion, I think I shall put moonlight in such a form:

Inner Moonlight – The ability of allowing to glow with the light of the moon, even when all the sunlight has drowned below, and darkness has crawled into someone’s life. It is how the sun would look like after a supernova occurred.

If it is what I say above, there has never been such a time when darkness surrounded me. I have willed myself to keep it out of reach, by either running, or fighting it when there is no other escape route available. I might be vague in saying this, but the kind of darkness involved within my life is very dark. Even the mention of it in words could give it power to get back out of the darkest regions where it’s been isolated and kept remote from my life.

As far as the Inner Moonlight is concerned, there is something called as intuition, which I recalled now, by which one finds his/her own way, when someone gets lost in their way. One of the best ways to realise and understand is that you are never practically lost. It is only the belief of getting lost. It also goes for something that you might act and react based on a certain activity or incident which triggers one to execute certain actions to solve a given problem.

You might say, I’m more of a preacher then approaching in practical life. There are many examples I could quote, but I do not see the reason to put them up. I’m sure such situations must have risen in your life some time.

Well, I simply howl for the madness in me. And if you have found it to be a muse, then so be it. I wonder how mad I have been, as compared to the real howlers who howl in the dark night and act based on their inner moonlight.
