080| Moon

15 4 2

I asked the moon
Why she is half bright
What is she hiding
Behind those whites

She turned away slowly
Growing out of sight
And she disappeared
At the fifteenth night

I waited for her
Another fifteen days passed
I almost lost hope
When she came back at last

And she smiled sadly
When I asked her why
She was gone for days
Half a month passed by

"I had been there forever
You just never looked
Close enough to see my crying
Between the dusk's nook"

"I showed you my scars
And the darkness I hide
But darling, this is the thing
Black never catches the eye"
