if i am the moon, you are the sun

once
the sun shone for the moon
and the moon became
radiant from reflecting the sun’s rays

(but stars are much brighter
than moons, you know)
and perhaps that us why
(slowly) the sun shone on the moon no more

but turned away [toward the stars]
the nights wander endlessly now
(and some say the heliophila
tore her apart)

some call the skies “the heavens”
but it just feels like hell to her

I saw the sun today (bright & radiant)
he looked happy [I am glad]
we ignored the existence of each other
you are my sun (no more)
