You defy the moon
and lie on no one's behalf
other than your own
burn me away
and steal my ashes
I'll only hate you more
Blinding my eyes.
I can never look at you directly
I only know that you exist
from the infinite light you force upon me
I am surrounded by the life you promote
I'd rather live with the forgiving moon
who cloaks and changes.
but only because of your shadows
I would have no shadows if not for you.
Damn your light.
