the moon man

the moon man
looks upon 
the earth
a ball of blue
and green

his land of white
porous craters
has become boring
the visor of his helmet is
cracked
not by accident

he lets out 
a little sigh
as his body
is drained of 
life

he wishes he
could come home to
earth

but no one will 
remember him
most likely

so he chooses to
be laid to rest
among the junk 
that floats
about
without a place to go

    Oh-- this is heartbreaking. I really felt the emotion coming from this piece and now I'm the emotion! This moved me, though... it's so sorrowful, but also lovely and delicate at the same time. Sigh. <3
