Longing To Be Mortal - Poem by Cat Summers

Moon Faerie
Sitting elegantly upon the crescent moon
Hung high in the sky like a note uttered by an angel
Radiant glow of the moon reflects upon her
Illuminating the look of longing on her face
Her speckled wings fold around her enclosing her in warmth
As her eyes peer down at the earth
Watching the mortals sleep

For even immortals long to be mortal
Human youths crave what the immortals wish they lacked
Immortals crave the mortality that humans wish to dispose
Once they too were entertained by the thought of immortality
Until time destroyed the playful idea of immortality
Then loneliness set in
For even the immortals long to be mortal once again
