Drinking Under the Moon

"Poetry and hums aren't things which you get, they're things which get you. All you can do is go where they can find you" – A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Moth

I have found what you are like,

A dark recess of the world that I can hide in.

                             Me,

A little moth that flutters to your light.

 

This orb of love,

Miserable makes

                                 Me.

 

I am Icarus and you are a sun,

Melting my wax wings

For being too close to your warmth.

 

Burn me, set alight your fire as you purge of my disease.

And mark your forehead in a cross of my ashes.

That you might wear my love in an act of worship.

 

This will be my solitary courtship.
