Twinkle, Twinkle ball of gas, with other stars you have no class, down below us in the dark, you know what's cooler? It's a shark.

Waning, Not Winning

PROMPT: Lunar Phrases

I guess I was only the Moon.
When was the last time you looked at me-
Really looked and saw me for what I am?
A rock.

I guess you forgot where we came from.
Just some dust.
Space dust.
It was a miracle we ever met.
A miracle we didn't fall into,

I guess I forgot where I came from.
A collision.
Back when you were molten
When we were one.
A miracle she hit us. 
Better in orbit that in the void
The dark

I guess I was only a scar to you.
Not a part of you.
I thought that we would be,
71% of 1% isn't very much.

I guess you owe all your bugs and people
crawling about on your skin
To Him,
The only way they see me
is owed to Him too.

I guess they noticed before you did.
I'm leaving because
I'm only the Moon.

    This is quite humorous. I can see the Moon as jealous of the Sun very well in this piece.
