I could stare up at the moon all night
Noticing different crevices and caverns
The way it shines so bright in the dark sky
But gentle enough that I could watch forever

I’m mesmerized by the way it glides slowly up
Until it reaches the highest point amid the stars
Like the pupil of your eye between that deep blue iris
And seems to rest above me for quite a long while

And I can’t help but wonder if you’re watching too
If maybe the two are connected, your eyes and the moon
And if you are looking up, thinking about my eyes
And how they cried that night you walked away

*Both my heart and the moon
Full of holes and dull light
Missing human connection
And fading away slowly
