New Moon

Image

There was a moon in the sky

Before I met you.

I saw it many times.

I even admired it’s beauty a time or two, I’m sure.

 

It’s a different moon now.

 

I look at it,

Shimmering silver,

Holding the inked sky above,

And I know that you’re under that moon,

 

The different moon.

 

Our shared moon.

 

There were stars in the sky

Before you.

 

Stars

And

Evening breezes

And

Waves on a sandy shore

And

Leather couches

And….

 

There was a world

Before you.

 

Dreams

Before you.

 

There was a world before you.

It’s a different world now.

 

An almost exact copy

That suddenly

Includes

 

You.

 

Sometimes,

Something more real,

More true,

More present

Than everything else

Comes to the world

And changes everything,

Pulls everything

Into a new orbit.

 

Suns do that.

 

You’ve done that.

 

Look.

 

See the moon?
