The Sun and the Moon

My Broken Heart

You are the sun,

and I am the moon.


My heart revolved around you,

but your light dimmed in my shadow. 


My darkness eclipsed your smile

that once shined so bright.


These craters on my heart

weighed heavy on our happiness.


I wish I swallowed your sunshine

rather than shrouding you in gray.
