the man in the moon 4.26

I try to believe
that your never uttered words
are the crescent moon

with negative space
closepacked with rocks and water
hidden, trapped inside

depths of the mantle
even though it is often
unaccessible

the smile of the man
in the moon is a cold one
lighting night pathways

but never bringing any
warmth to bask upon your skin

    This is beautiful. Reminds me of love unrequited…the negative space occupied by words unsaid…the “cold smile” of the man in the moon…and all those words packed in unseen mantle. I really love it.
