View Full Version : watching her watch the moon

I loved to watch her watch the moon. The way her eyes glisten and her head tilted was as beautiful to me as the night sky was to her.
One night, when she was gazing at the small sliver in the sky, I asked her;
"what do you think about?" I passed. "when you watch the moon... what are you thinking?"
She turned her head towards me and smiled slightly, with a tear rolling down her cheek she responded as if she was trying not to wake the dandelions that surrounded us, as if the slightest sound could send there puffy white seeds into outer space before they where ready.
"how tragically beautiful it must be to watch all the pain and sadness that suffocates the earth, yet know you can do nothing to stop the beautiful disaster." she shook her head and looked back up to the moon. "its like watching your best friend be devoured by a trillion butterfly's." she whispered as a second tear rolled off her face and dissolved into the grass.
and that's when I realized,
she was the moon.

tell me what you think or if i should change anything :)
