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.
