To the Moon

Your dim, uncertain light
scares me
confusing my daily schedule
it triggers something I cannot explain
maybe it’s my forgotten shadow?

If you could just stop to hunt it
by illuminating my deepest fears
maybe then I would say that it’s okay for me
to watch the inscrutable puzzle you seem to be

But until then I’ll be running away
and hiding as much as I possibly can
feeling your wide open eyes on me,
knowing that it’s hard to hide who I am.
