ode to the moon

by Ananyaa S., 16

In love with your mild rays of light
Oh moon
I am a selenophile
Driven to madness
Over the brief nighttime
God is cruel to hide you
In the time when I rest my eyes

But I understand for beauty as you
Is too precious to be shared
To the simple minded as I

Consume me
oh moon
For I too want to be divine
Your beauty baffles me
White pearl in the dark night sky
