I WONDER ABOUT YOU MOON
Into your silvery wisp
the crescent curves I yearn
Upon the night air crisp
You linger then you burn
Passion pale and looming
Together they become you
You, always there unassuming,
Each night revealed anew
So many spotlights shone
turned off with but a wink
But you sated all alone
Can cause my heart to sync.
Confessions voiced into your light
Can speak a different tale
Whether dark oaths or beaming bright
I wonder why you’re pale?
Are you so pale just from fatigue?
Traversing all this earth
Climbing Heaven ‘s stairs each week
To witness nightly births.
The work too much, caressing thrones,
Of grandeur, His bequeathed
in stark reveries, with eyes unsewn,
your power is released
A simple shimmy to the right
Or left absorbing heat
Then to cycle, when day is night
And passion is replete
Again to sea, those darkened seas,
To find your gilt lover
Svelte your smile beyond the trees,
Pines for ardent cover
But none will fully understand
The gravity of you
Just ask the waves that hit the land
your influence is truth.
Perhaps your grin is misconstrued
From that wan upon your face.
That same old string in servitude
The path that you must grace
You linger there and pass like ships
Though no one else intrudes
No slattern hanging from your hips
No passions you’ve pursued
So are you running scared and weak,
Afraid of what will come
The gravity of that we speak
Is all too much for some
I do believe you have your pride
And virtue is your way
We always say it’s what’s inside
But yours is on display
You hide that pall in shades of dark
Though show in languished light
The depths of love its kindling spark
Can hurt if it’s not right.
I ask you moon of your disgrace
Are you lovestruck by the stars?
The way they write about face
Is it laced with smiles or scars?
You reach for me although he burns
My passions are aflame
My touch is what your innards yearn
But that feeling never came
In this path we know and speak of
Are you fated as the fool?
When near the touch of true love,
Are you unrequited too?
