Love Moon

Love Moon (2)

She looked my way,

when sorrow overtook her,

and cast her shine upon my useless heart. 

I’ve seen that look before,

briefly,

through moving windows,

separating us for a moment,

like the miles would,

soon,

separate us for all time. 

But tonight,

like sometimes,

when the earth and the moon are close as life allows,

I feel her. 

Not how we were,

once,

but in the only way there is left to us. 

In our wounded hearts,

under the Love Moon.

I Dreamed

dream

I took a nap. 

I dreamed. 

Something good happened. 

I woke up. 

I wasn’t there.

FOMO

 

empty-hands

Fear of missing out. 

I didn’t know it was a thing,

until I was without. 

Didn’t feel its sting,

until it came about. 

Learned it had a name,

now I take the blame,

for listening.
