The Moon & I

by Candice Marie


Like waves of the ocean,
my emotions are controlled by the moon.

One misty night, my soul feels ravaged
tossing from one extreme to the next
rioting onto lonely shores of jumped-to conclusions.

There are calm nights...serenity
when the pale, faceless mask of the moon has retreated for a brief moment
jolts of pure contentment,
laughter wafting across a calm sea, happy music floating against its surface.

A man could drown in those depths, yet live happily above it all.

The reflection of the moon on the dark, mystical waters of my soul is just a silent mockery
as the next night the rays of twilight attack my senses

feeling as if even the stable shores of which I desperately crash are against me
laughing silently while I cling to its edges
sliding backward only to try,
try again to attach myself to something
not so wayward,
not so transparent or reflective as the cursed moon in the darkness of the night.
