Man In The Moon

by John Herzog

you call me the moon
or so that's how you see me
and maybe I am
because I can see my reflection
in the oceans of your eyes
my man in the moon
dancing on lunar surface
through all my phases
caressing my craters
from impacts so celestial
you see I'm indestructible
and maybe I am
maybe I am
but a reflection
in your eyes
the sum of the ways you see me
the greatest self I could be
if I could live there forever
I'll know I'm indestructible
like our waltz through the heavens
an ascension as unbreakable
as the gravitation
that keeps us spinning
I pulled you into orbit
our bodies revolving
and you couldn't help
but stay
my man in the moon
I wouldn't have it any other way

so good and would very easily become a song

breathtakingly well written...I hate to comment on the writing itself, which is stellar (obviously), but reading this goes right into the soul...incredible work...
