Luna

Luna

A Poem by Cpt. Alex Rover
"

Ever wonder why we shine? Or do we ever?

"
He fell in love with Luna 
One night under a starless sky

Calling: Luna! Luna!
Why do you not answer me?

As Luna waxed and waned
by her side he stayed

Calling: Luna! Luna!
Are you okay?

And when Luna came down that fateful night
He stayed there, by her side

Whispering: Luna, Luna
Will you leave me?

When she opened her mouth, out came a sound
And he fell down

Crying: Luna! Luna!
Did you ever see me?

He raged at the sun
for days on end

Screaming: Luna! Luna!
Why did you take her from me?

He cursed at the sun, telling him not to shine
But when he did, Luna he could still not find

Saying: Luna, Luna
Whence did you go?

He felt the warm touch of the sun on his back
Telling him why she would not come back

Crying: Luna! Luna! 
Why can we not be?

And he went to wander
Great Unknowns
Searching through the pitch black sky

Always Searching
for one thing

Crying: Luna! Luna!
I will shine on my own.

Not that it's what you were going for, but it reminds me of a dream I had when I was little and the sun would shine through everything, so bright, through walls, doors, anything. I was praying for the moon and wishing the sun would go away. Besides the memory it reminded me of, it was a really good poem, original and creative. Thanks for sharing!
