a clouded heart

do not reprimand me
i have been under the influence
the present moon has rendered me
speechless
and unquantifiable
as

human

i love you
more than a raining sky loves tears
mine
weeping warm
for a moon covered in the greys
of a clouded heart

how can you fault me for such

loving something so primal
as a moon

  1. This is magnificent... I do think love is both as simple as this, and at the same time twice as complicated.

  11. The answer to the final question is simple: Finding fault is something that some of us do best, because it's so easy!

  12. Why not? The moon, the trees and rivers flowing, how can we not talk to them and thank them for making our world so beautiful
