Caught by the Moon

I wrote a little thing yesterday in a waiting room.  The photos came by night, unable to sleep….around 1am by using only streetlight coming in my bedroom windows.
Waiting Moon
You…you…find me like this, and I’m sorry
You…you…love me like this, like I’m worthy
And for all I know, I can’t comprehend it
And you’ll never make me understand it
Chasing me down that silent street
My streetlight shadows outrun my feet,
and I’ll trip again on that unsteady tightrope
For every heart just born beats with hope
to find and escape love’s jagged arrows…
Feel it…
Feel it…
that cold anger made from a blanket of warm sorrow
You…you…found me like this, and I’m sorry
You…you…loved me like this, like I was worthy
And for all I know, I can’t comprehend it
And you’ll never make me understand it
The wind brings storms, then the dead calm
Then I….
Then I…
I can’t help falling into the stars’ strong arms
I can’t help falling into the sun’s warm chest
Waiting to be caught by the moon
Where my love rests
