Moon

He was bright and kind

the king of the night time sky

just like the moon

I saw him through the clouds

of people

just waiting for my smile

just like the moon

He shone on every dark corner

even when I thought

there was no light

just like the moon

I called out

I sang my heartsong

to him

Will he hear?

just like the moon


I was inspired by a quote from Anna Karina “…like she was the sun”. This poem is a response to that idea of sun and moon. I might come back to this idea and write a sun poem as well. I really like the idea of contrast and of course the idea of love. Photo by malith dk on Unsplash.
