Naked Moon

Naked moon, You defy the stars Because you are close so soon Yet you are far. You tame the light Yet you make the savage That calls himself night. Before day you fall out of sight. Like a secret in a shadow You are scared to stay. You must rival against the light ray. Naked moon, The earth is your cover In which you lay While I wait at night to watch you play. You shed your mask As you leave my bed. At night Once more we meet again For you soar upon the sky And in my window you pore. I find myself stuck Between the hinge of the door. Naked moon, Arise And covet me softly From within your discise. You make infinity reach And the stars you teach. You are the heart of the sky And you are the eye’s main part. The jealousies of the planets are cast upon you And takes away from the gods of the past. They seem to save the best for last. Naked moon, You are the night’s eye Watching over where tainted men lie. You lead me to the truth And stayed with me through youth As I grew. Naked moon, As you are naked to me I am naked to you too.
