Oh, Poor Moon

Oh, Poor Moon

By IlliterateCat007

She is a child of the stars.

Flawless and beautiful, though she doesn’t know it.

With her eyes like the moon,

And hair like the deepest ocean.

Flowing.

Adrift.

She felt as the moon would;

Alone.

Among an endless sea of stars that do not encompass her.

Is she a planet or a star?

What is the moon?

She is the moon.

What else do you want from her?

Do you really need her to be one of the stars?

Is it not enough for her to roam among them peacefully?

No.

No, the moon is not enough.

She must be just like the stars or she is flawed.

Not too noticeable or you’re an attention-seeker, not too quiet or you’re angsty.

She is a child of the stars.

She is trapped amongst the stars.

She lights up the entire night sky almost entirely by herself, but no.

That’s not enough.

Forget your trophies, forget your beauty, forget your perfections.

Oh, poor moon…

Swimming in the sky, floating amongst traitors. Floating amongst regular.

Trying to escape the current.

Author Notes: I hope the moon is doing okay on this fine night :))
