wavering lunar cycles

was the moon with you tonight
while i was around town kicking the street

it never lit my way
while you let its beams soak into your skin

the stars were lonely in my view
but shimmered with you in delight

as i sweat under streetlights
your company kept you content

the night chilled me to my core
the conversation kept you warm

ill see the sunrise
as you say goodbye

tonight the moon will catch my eye
leaving you the starry sky

but i wont spend my time
wasting it inquiring

keeping to the beaten roads
returning to the reliable

discussion
