One of Us

There's a bright
Finger nail in the sky;
I like to imagine
The man in the moon
Bit it off in a moment
Of stress or perhaps
He was befuddled
By some beauty
He saw down below,
Because even if he is
Amongst the stars
He's all alone
Wishing to be
One of us;
Human and flawed
Because we are always
Within reach
Of making a connection;
With one another,
But we'll always
Look up at the sky
Wondering
What it's like
To be him...

    I love the premis. I would also love to see you work it a tiny bit more so it flows and maybe some line breaks to give me a chance to savor your awesome idea about the finger nail bitten off...BRILLIANT concept...just brilliant...God's anxiety. Man that so works for me. Or Man on the moon ...whatever works for you..Just a great great image
