If anyone has a suggestion for a better title, I'd love to hear it haha.
These metaphors probably aren't very original, but I've been in a poetic mood lately, so either way it was fun to write. Thanks for reading, and I appreciate any and all feedback :)

PROMPT: Lunar Phrases

8
the moon
is the jewel that crowns the ebony sky,
a hole from where the universe's sadness spills out,
pooling on the ground in glistening rivulets.

the moon
is an eggshell,
pure white but chipped with craters,
moonlight dripping between the stars like a runny yolk.

the moon
is milk,
a pale sweetness that quickly sours,
only to be chased away by the sun.
