Won’t You Tell Me?

Oh silver Moon, do you know?
Tell me, how long ago
was it that you found out
Without the sun you couldn’t
paint the black nights silver
that your light could never burn out
Since it wasn’t yours to keep?

Tell me, do you remember?
the days our planet eclipsed
your ivory, cratered shadow
Do you ever feel scared
knowing that it will again?

Tell me silver Moon,are you lonely
those times when not even the tides respond to
Your desperate, silent wailing?
Tell me, how long ago
Did you fall into the gravity
of an indifferent friend? Or when did you certainly know
That your days will be spent circling
All these melancholy epiphanies

Oh silver Moon, won’t you tell me?


 

Next, another conversation with the moon on life, and longing.
