The Moon


Between branches you hang
With hesitant boldness
In the spaces of the leaves
You kiss me
With audacity

Faithless lover
Kissed all day
With blazing heat
Now in the darkness
You fondle me

I wake to your
Unblinking stare
And watch you tattoo
My skin with light
Unfelt caresses

You rouse me
With your coolness
Taking unfair advantage
Of lunar passions
You draw me to yourself

You’ll fade and pass
I know you must
But one thing
I will ask, leave me

The lunacy of love.
