The Moon’s phases are a result of…well there’s a scientific theory which is kind of boring and not so lovely,so here I write about a possibility(a fact in my head though)…don’t you feel like the moon breathes,sighs,loves and drowns in sorrow,lights up in love,I feel so,yes,I know that maybe I cannot get away from feeling that way if I let everyone onto how I feel about things but I can always write about it,right?
So,this is my theory on why I think the moon phases,yes,absolutely,the whole world revolves around me,so obviously the moon’s phases too have to do something with me and my life,I believe that(giggles),you should too…repeat after me…the whole world revolves around me(chuckles)…well done,now believe it…


Every once in a while
the moon burns itself out…
fiercely…
it’s ashes dissipate…
it’s reduced to dust…
all because of envy…
it cannot comprehend
but also cannot deny…
that none can love it
more than I love your
dazzling glistening eyes…
it takes a while…
for it to recover…
to collect itself again
from across space…
and this charade…
the rest of the
earth’s inhabitants…
call the moon’s phases
