Beseech the Moon

Beseech the Moon

Avowal of yearning
The tide rushes in
Then, unsympathetically, pulls away
I wait, in silence, beneath your glow
You, in your austerity
Oblivious to my salient need
Do you not know my hunger
You, who are filled with fervent prayer
Shining brightly with imprisoned candles
Lit by hearts of urgency and expectation
I wonder should you set them free
Will your light fail
