Tears From The Moon

I swear,
Tonight I saw tears running down from the Moon.
You might think I am crazy,
Or that I daydream hazy in the middle of the night.
No Sir!
I swear, I caught a glimpse of those silver drops
Go down the scorched cheeks of that sleeping beauty.
I felt her pain grow big like a threatening black hole.
I saw her sadness spread all over the Milky Way.
For she can't be close to the one she longs for.
The Moon I mean.
She is the secret lover of the Sun.
Didn't you know?
Shush, don't pry.
You'll make the Earth jealous.

    Nice work! I love it and would like to share my similar work.(also another one A LOVE SONG BY THE STAR)


    Their hug is too quick for the moon to bind
    Her shy love to the sun’s glowing mind
    Just because they both always find
    People down there are watching behind. (Report) Reply

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
