I Think the Moon of You
 

I wanted to chase the moon with you until I realized
the moon needs your luminescence to stay awake for the rest of the world
every night.

But maybe this time,
I can watch from a distance.
The illumination of your love
and how it pulls tides;
casting a bit of hope over my ominous waters.

I would follow you forever -
but I need something more permanent.
You compliment something much more significant,
more far-reaching
than anything I could ever cradle between my imperfect palms.

Galaxies are enamored by you.
And the stars?
Never a contest.
You told me you thought the world of me?
Well,
I think the moon of you.
