An Ode to the Moon

ODE TO THE MOON

Crafted not to emit light
But to reflect it
Her name embodies the darkness And what lies underneath
The veil of nightfall
Her pale blue glow resonates
Casting shadows upon life after her
But blood red in her eclipse
She wasn’t as perfect as idealised by poets
Her visage was flawed by her weakness
Across her pallid form was a long, deep crack
Showing that she was once pulled apart
But she’s all what’s left of the Sun
The reflected shine after twilight
Be the vessel of my dreams
So I can sail my wishes to the other side
To my lost beloved:
My glowing sun was somewhere out there
Far, far away
In the absence of sunshine
On moonlight shall I feed
But the moon’s faint gleam do pale
Before the sun’s majestic blaze.
