Stealing The Moon

20111223-173516.jpg
Stealing the moon
Gathering fragments to sweep into piles
Tidied and hiding in unpolished eyes
Weary diversions for subtle conditions
Cradled in visions she cannot describe

Stealing the moon
Kleptomaniacal just for tonight
Grasping at beams–she is holding so tight
Keeping reflections in tattered arrays
Tugging at sparkles that once were so bright

Stealing the moon
Storing the pieces in some other room
Wrapped away snugly in linens, but soon
Dark will be on her and she will return
Burning with passion but never consumed

  1. Beautiful! Your last lines: “Dark will be on her and she will return
    Burning with passion but never consumed” close the whole piece, leaving it stunning to the reader. Excellently crafted. Beautiful piece, VW!
