In Admiration of the Moon 

by Aavyn Lee


I have followed you to the ends of the earth

All of my existence, 

I have watched you rise and fall

Like the ebb and flow of the tides that dance in your presence 

I burn knowing that we may never never lay cheek to cheek 

For I am the sun, and you are my Icarus

But at every day break, I will watch

As you fade into the blue

And I long for the night when you may reflect my light

And we become whole once more.
