The Woman On The Moon

The Woman On The Moon

Standing on the moon
She looks at the Earth
Her black hair rests on her shoulders
Her eyes are black as night
She stares at the horizon
Watching the Earth above
Circling the star in an endless orbit
So many people on that sphere
She sits alone
Do the people know what they do?
She cannot talk
She cannot scream to let them know
Their planet is dying
Maybe they don't know
Maybe they don't care
She cries without a sound
Her tears freeze on the barren ground
She watches that blue sphere
Traveling across her sky
And she is the only one who cares
