Meridian

†  
Sunrise excites me. †
†  
I get that tingle †  
in my chest that †
dawn burst through †  
the neverwhere †  
and skated a †  
new deck †
of infinite possibility †
through †
a cobalt horizon. †
†  
And itís easy to understand †  
the metaphor .  
†  
But the moon, †
a lone lamp †
in an uncaring sky †  
haunts me, †
makes me ache in †  
unexplained ways. †
†  
Itís not as easy to understand .  
†  
And you. †  
†  
You, love, are †  
the meridian †  
between †
†  
lighting up †
both ends †
of my mental sky.
