23/06 : Peaceful PoetrySunlight/Moonlight
He lives in the land of light,
And drifts from place to place.
Tracing the steps, well worn,
Across the Earth's surface.
His burning white rays sear the Earth,
And his heat sucks the land dry.
In a desperate attempt to get water
To someday manage to cry.
Can you imagine the frustration,
Of never being able to show how you feel?
To wear a happy shining mask
Over the pain that time can't heal.
She lives in the land of dark,
Slowly orbitting the night.
Through teary eyes she smiles down,
Shining her pale light.
Slinking around in the shadows,
Then gradually peeking out.
The light that shines so bright within,
Desperate to shine without.
Pain courses through her heart
With a longing so intense.
She waits for her sun to rise,
Impatient with suspense.
The sky lightens when he arrives
Desperate to catch a glimpse,
Of the maiden he holds so dear,
And she of her sweet prince.
They long to shout endearments,
To joyfully announce their love.
But the moment is all they have,
And the sun rises above.
The moon has set and he has risen,
Forever shall this be.
Never touching... or speaking.
But loving for eternity....
