I was the moon
You, the sun.
Dancing together but separate
in our parallel universes.
Always in sync,
rarely in sight,
More alike than different, yet,
too different to be alike.
Lightness and darkness.
A curiously beautiful mix.
Like oil and water
Tirelessly swirling around each other,
But we could never fully intertwine.
Yes, you stayed in your own orbit.
I watched you from the darkness,
across the galaxy, feeling too far away.
Trying to remember your existence,
An attempt to feel your light.
And when it was time for day,
I always longed for a kiss goodbye.
But you never looked back, my Sun,
As you left to light up everyone else’s sky
