Always a moon

In the depths of night, in the thick of silence, it cuts through the window. Slicing through the blinds. A sharp smile dancing on the walls. I run my fingers through the light. Grasp it in my hands. For a moment I’m not alone. I hold it in my hands and my heart lifts, my mind cools. Night after night. I wait for that smile.



Moon whole and full
Owns the night sky
Bright orange glow
Welcomes me in
I’d climb to you
If you would come closer
Carve steps from the clouds
You hide behind
Shimmering in the water
Your face Reflected
I’ll dive in instead
Dip my toes
In you
Feel your embrace
