Moonwane



O fickle moon, caretaker of souls
who chase their dreams 
across the skies you
waver now, and waste away
in quiet desperation,
night surrenders to the light 
as reveries fade.
O passionless pale face!
barely transparent, 
bloodless as a dying rose
in the throes of dissolution.

    Some strange and wonderfulthings take place under the moon. A full moon especially and after the damage, the light is so cruel. A great story told so beautifully.
