The Ominous Moon

 

I have holes and craters that make my surface appear damaged but oddly more complete.

 

You are surrounded by light and skies of painted color,

And symbolize a temporary ending to my temporary darkness.

 

For I am the powerful ominous moon, and you the delightfully peaceful sun, 

 

You chase my shadows to sleep and give a false sense of refreshment to the ones you’re rays touch.

 

As if their problems will leave without my presence,

And somehow my shadows will carry them away.

 

I do not lie or falsify the truth, 

I provide it Cold and unapologetically which is why few dare to hold my penetrating gaze.

 

For the night is as cold as I am,

And the tide just as ruff.

 

For the day is as unpredictable as you are,

And the clouds just as unforeseeable.
