to the moon

Hi, everyone! I just wanted to thank you all for your comments—as always, they mean a ton to me. I’m still trying to figure out how to help my arms, and at this point, it’s all I can do to stay on top of my school work. I really miss chatting with you all, and I feel awful about not replying to comments. I’m making sure to like them to let you know that I do read them and that they bless me. Thanks for being awesome, guys, and I look forward to when I can get more involved again. Until then, I’m going to post poems/musings when I can. Enjoy!

the supermoon last Sunday

if I was offered Saturn’s rings

or Neptune’s diamond rain

or Jupiter’s many moons

 

if I was given Andromeda

or the North Star

or Halley’s brief brilliance

 

I’d turn them down for you

I’d turn it all down for you

 

’cause it’s you who smiled at me

when I first stared at the sky

on a sacred night long ago

 

’cause it’s you who witnessed

when I wrestled with

my midnight monsters

 

’cause it’s you who shone

through my window and

lulled me to sleep with a song

 

’cause it’s you who stood still

when my whole world spun,

you my beacon of home

 

I just want the rings you make on the sea

I just want the diamonds you make of my tears

I just want you, holding the darkness around us at bay

 

I’d turn it all down for you
