You, And Then The Moon

You, And Then The Moon

1 min 14.3K 1 min 14.3K

And then there are moments when I love you

As much as I love the moon


On the days it is ripe and full

And miss you as much as I miss it


On nights it refuses to see me

Or am as much annoyed with you


As on evenings when I want to see only some of its face

Or when it’s just a beautiful thought


Or song

Flowing through my memory


Gently,

Incessantly,

Coherently.


You and I, separated by miles

United by thoughts


I know you think of me

Right when I do of you


That’s why those dreams..

And on days of complete darkness


When I'm lost in twilight

I seek your presence


Or your disdain, or insolence

Whatever you have to offer..


I know, it’s only ephemeral

Just as that emerging meniscus


That veils you from me today

Announcing after seven nights..


Don't hide, let me take a glimpse

Before the eternal eclipse


You are my moon

And I am yours


Did you know the moon also had one of its own?

Why, then, can I not?


Why, then, shall we not ascend the silvern ladder

Far away from this grey world


Meet underneath a starry hedge

If perpetual abstinence is what they call life?


I would rather not wait to see you on the other side.
