The moon falls for the sun
And begets beautiful stars
With absent skies of trust
And celestial scars

Skin scorched to porcelain
Let’s see what the dark beholds
As patience dies to wear thin
And your embrace awaits cold

Part the seas
With lips the same
To find the genie
With a wish unmade

I once dreamed of poetic landscapes
Or to hold a true love
but I have no more faith in this fate
For this world is not enough

So maybe I can grab your hand
And we can leave this place
with a kiss good-bye
And your hair in your face

The wind wisps this rose garden
And the clouds cloud my head
But I search for you … I always have
On this destiny, never before tread

The moon falls for the sun
And begets beautiful stars
With absent skies of trust
We make this world ours

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

This is absolutely beautiful. I know so many people have tols you this, but it is. I was there, when I was reading the poem, I hope that makes sense. You're a wonderful, talented person and writer, and I hope you know that. Thank you for sharing this!

The moon falls for the sun  And begets beautiful stars With absent skies of trust  We make this world ours   That stanza summerizes the poem perfectly. Your wording and imagery are fantastic. Beautiful poem, truly. 5/5

The truth is that at some point, everyone's going to hurt you. You just have to decide who's worth the pain.

Some say having something to lose is what makes you vulnerable. I believe that having something to lose only makes you stronger.

I have but one word: Beautiful.

Absolutely :)
