Moonlit Writings    

 I’ve been blessed with a celestial boon     
 In moonlight and darkness, I bloom 
 For my soul is not the sun’s, but the moon’s     
      
 I dance with the moon and sleep by the sun     
      
 For the darkness is my closet friend      
 Although this wasn’t always so     
 Now the stygian night is mine to bend     
      
 Once suffering from nyctophobia severe      
 Insomnia being my mind’s way to cope     
 The monsters were all so frightening real     
 As I tightly clung to reality’s idealistic rope     
      
 I dance with the moon and sleep by the sun     
      
 So frightened of the dark as a small child     
 Though now it’s my best friend and muse     
 Now seeing the beauty in darkness, beguiled      
 The alluring darkness I now so readily use     
      
 I long for the moon’s light
 My insomnia now my muse and inspiration      
 While others may sleep, I’m inspired to write      
      
 I dance with the moon and sleep by the sun     
             
 For my soul is not the sun’s, but the moon’s     
 In moonlight and darkness, I bloom 
 I have been blessed with a celestial boon
