relationships that fade,
clouds passing the moon
silently and without effort
the light dims
the moon sinks

Once, new stars were born
joyful, intriguing
kisses on the foreheads
suffocating like summer rain.
Eyes were pierced on every word
laughs worn
absorbed into the mythology on drunken nights
and deep confessions
Pats on backs and congratulations
but

clear nights are cold
and frost stings the heart
icy truths are difficult to grasp,
quicker to release

the moons craters darken
behind an endless procession of grey cloth
relationships fade
the light dims
and the moon and all its stars
sink
