love story.

once upon a time, a moon
loved a planet. she loved
a planet called Earth, loved
him so much she carved
herself so she could fit
beside him.

once upon a time, a moon
traveled the galaxy, she traveled
from ice & rock & open emptiness,
so far & so long until she forgot
what was once a home, she made
a home beside him.

once upon a time, a moon
carried starlight to a planet called Earth,
a moon toiled at his tides, gave him
center & a nightlight. she lived
to breathe beside him.

once upon a time, a moon
awoke in Earth’s inky darkness, she
watched old lovers walk the shores,
she smiled at toddlers who grasped her brightness.
she loved a planet called Earth & loved
to be beside him.

once upon a time, a moon
became a ghost, a reflection,
tethered herself to a planet
called Earth. a moon longed to be
beside him.
