a poem

Every now and then, a dark moon rises: looming over your head,

Casting a dark blue light onto the room, and onto the silhouette of you.

Luring my gaze, I settle into the whites of your eyes; as it waxes and wanes.

In time, the light of the room returns, and I remember just where we are.

Perpetually bound, it falls and rises, leading my mind with a string.

Strung 'round your little finger, I am wound tighter and tighter,

Each touch of horizon.
