A moon is neglected as it loses its sense of orbit.

The beheaded moon pales,
It wails,
And unlike the other moon, it derails.
Separated from Mars, drawn into space. 
Mars longs for its 2nd moon, temporarily.
Temporarily?
Why, yes. For Mars is content with its single moon.
Thus the moon wanders, drifting, desiring a friend. 
Someone, anyone, it cries. 
Yet Mars and its moon are inseparable. 
The lone moon attaches to a different planet before disrupting the orbit. 
It is then thrust back into space. 
All the while watching the moon rotate around Mars. 
It envies. 
But it is not to touch. 
It is to flutter aimlessly in the onslaught of its miser. 
For all of eternity, it provokes the other planets. 
None of them will make room for the moon. 
The moon lives in solitude, neglected, rejected. 
Never to understand, never to be understood.
