Separated; like the night sky from the day,
Caress; the soft embrace of love, pulling at their heartstrings,
A desire of a union meant to be withheld.
Love tearing them apart with a cruel and swift hand.
The world split in half,
And on each end were lovers…
The sun and the moon
The Moon; a cold body living in the empty night.
The Sun; a warm ray that filled the world with light.
Both lived in solitude,
Sun sending her warmth, and,
Moon existing in nothing.
…and the Sun loved the Moon
In those brief moments when they were close,
A day where the moon passed in front of the sun.
The day turned into night,
In the stillness of that moment, the earth went dark.
The whole world felt,
The warmth of her affection,
And the silence we shed in awe.
She would wait for The Sun for ages,
To glow, at last, as one.
In the light of an eclipse,
If only for a little while.
But he is trapped,
In eternal day,
Trying to reach, his beautiful Lune.
They chase each other.
For days. Weeks. Months. Years.
Void and longing,
Keeps pulling at them.
Until they meet at last,
To steal a precious kiss,
In a briefly beautiful; Solar eclipse.
They beat on, lonely and eager,
Searching for the one thing that brings them solace.
Time too short, time they seek,
In sadness, they cried.
Knowing they had to wait for another shortcoming,
While chasing the shadows of each other.
But they still belonged together, like yin and yang.
