Bella Luna

The storm quiets itself so I can hear you
And as you whisper
A blade of light strikes five miles away
Weíll later find a tree cracked in half
Its peak black and youíll say,
This is harder than it should be.
But right now, I follow.

You lead me through the woods and back home
You raise mugs and say, whatís good, and I take out hot cocoa
You leave before it starts raining because tomorrow youíll be right
This is harder than it should be but when youíre gone? Something in me dies.

I heard it once before that life goes like this
You do your best with nothing and you still come up with shit
A long time ago, I met the man on the moon
And ever since Iíve looked for him in faces, smirks, and wounds
But maybe Iím the one who needed looking for.

I pass through the garden time and again
You were another lifetime
And as one does, when they are reborn
I cry until the dead thing breathes itself to life within me.
And I say,
Troubles are opportunities for improvement.
But right now, I crumble.

I crumble like graham crackers on chocolate marshmallow
I raise a mug of warm milk and wish for a tomorrow
When I can dance in the downpours and feel love in the smallest things
Now my today is just like this as I let myself be

This isnít the worst that Iíve been through and it wonít be the last
But right now? Iím with the man on the moon looking at a map.
Which way will I go? And who will I be?
Wherever it is, I know two things:
Life is better when you do it with gusto
And someone out there will always find me.

Author's Note
I just read this aloud to my dad to see what he'd say. He's very analytical and focused on deriving the exact 'right' meaning from everything. So he pretty much got lost as soon as the man in the moon was mentioned haha. I hope you're all doing okay and keeping your dreams alive :)
