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
