Day 4 – Beautiful Things

I think the moon accepts now
he can’t catch me in the daytime
but he watches through my window
just the same

I see him pouting when I do the trash at night
he wants to know why I don’t
play scared anymore

I tell him what he wants to hear
I say it straight into his face
he won’t believe me, though
it’s new, but not to him:

“Beautiful things should not be feared”
I learned to say it loud and fierce
that took his fun away
but I don’t mind, I know

he can’t go anywhere

    1. What if the moon was a metaphor?
      I like to think it represents both depression and happiness-

      depression can be beautiful, happiness is deserved by all, and neither should be feared.
