Full Moon Fetish

tonight, i sprawl by my window
throw open the window blinds
and let moonlight caress my eyes
flood my room with her silvery glow

like streams of silver lines
she’ll pierce through the dry clouds of my heart
with wet wishes that’ll induce torrents of tears

tears of joy, maybe


i stand still in awe staring hard and long
as her imperfection
fill my dark spots with perfect illumination

look how the shape of her changes
from crescent to a ball, yet she glows

and i am just here, lovelorn and lonely

but like the moon, full of self doubts,
i’ll shine through darkness
until i become the silver lining i seek in pregnant clouds
