Who taught you the moon and sun have a tragic love?
why do you believe they live a tortured life apart
who taught you that time is linear,
that intimacy is a touch
that happiness and love are hard to come by?
Can’t you see that the moon and the sun have the strongest of love,
an effortless unconditional acceptance
supporting each other through the tides and cloudy days,
the sun is always illuminating the moon through the night
the moon leaving the sun to be everyone’s spotlight
who told you they are opposing forces
they are two sides of the same coin
but there is a dance between them
of day and night that energises the world
they make love by pushing time
they connect by moving the world forward
climaxing through eclipses, such intimacy.
this world is a child
merely looking up at its parents not understanding the unity and beauty that comes from loving someone for lifetimes
that just their smile is enough to move oceans inside you,
why do you continue to believe that such a great symbol of love is star-crossed and destined to be apart?
when the very thought of the one prompts you to think of the other
they are married on your tongue
Our love can’t cease over distance or time
I need not your hand in my every night
because like the moon and sun
our souls are married across lifetimes
We had swallowed our emotions like glass.
Riping slits in our throats
the breathing no longer muscle memory is strained,
seeping through into our veins
searching for our hearts,
hoping to drown it,
to stop the beating,
these hidden emotions are fighting to be felt.
The pressure of suppression only makes coal
We are left waiting to be set alight.
Don’t you know all the things we risk to fall in love?
It’s never as simple of a jump as it seems
You are a collapsing galaxy.
The sky is birthed by your triumph to survive.
Living is not just the adventure
Maybe breathing is enough when you have given the world to much
