The moon did not belong to the sun,
Yet they were intertwined beyond lightyears.
While one was burning like a wildfire in the galaxy,
The other one hungered for stray light.
The hollow host danced around the earth,
Hoping to catch a glimpse of the glowing star.
The sun’s torrid nature consumed the moon
Till it broke him into pale pieces each night.
The sun’s scarlet warmth at dawn
Had bled deeply through the sky
Like an aphrodisiac that filled the air
Of the moon’s nocturnal abode.
Defying nature, the moon remained
As dawn broke out and the sun appeared.
Holding on as the light burnt him,
For once, the sky was still as the sun kissed her lover’s face goodbye.
