1488: Waltz of the Moons

Carnage and the language of lust, join the waltz of the moons around their respective castles. Stay awake and say how much you know how love begins and ends. It's a cycle of violations and forgiveness. 

Can they all be seen behind a telescope? Decide where you'd like to spend the night. "At the top of the observatory where all we need is our eyes." I tend to listen to the whispers of an aching heart.

Mercury. Venus. Left alone to circle each other around the campfire. Earth and the mirror of Luna reflecting what she can see unto the only surface that knows life. Phobos and Deimos. Shadows cast against the Crimson desert. Do they see how they can break the ice and rest in each other's arms?

Sphere of storms. Io and the surveillance of Ganymede, bring Callisto's map of ordeals and have yours imprinted with the same gravity. Palace of rings, Hyperion commands the fleet. Aside from lies what can possibly tear you away from me?

Titania and Oberon, they have the citadel of glass. Why do they turn to his side whenever he seeks variance and speaks of bribery? Neptune and the lore of Triton and Nereid. Conclude the search and let them remain lost beneath the waters

Pluto and Charon's sacred dinner, can anything be more private than two souls in the dark? It is one's motives that bring about what happens. A secret without any hint of malice remains pure until such time when the recipient is deemed worthy to hear its all.

Carnage between lust and love, have you danced the waltz of the moons? Stay awake and tell me the story of how our love began to end.

    I love the moon too, Aiyah. It's almost always present in one of the lines of something I may have written at night. I can't help but stare at it like a werewolf!
