la lune

la lune

A Poem by Jene'e

you are the moon

cold and distant

i cannot touch you

i cannot get close

but you shine in the darkness

illuminating these streets for me

and when i look up to you

and i do

i can see your shaded face looking back

aesthetic in asymmetry

through this two-paned glass

you are so beautiful

how i wish i could hold you

keep you safe in the palms of my hands

reach through the window and pluck you from the sky

lo, i watch you from down here

from afar

and i feel your gravity

i feel you pull me in

the waves crash over me

i feel the tide as it swells in my chest

and you steal away my breath

you are the moon

i watch you 

your many phases

and i fear i am but one of them
