the cheater

The Sun gently told the Sky
“It’s time for me to leave now,
should you be sad, remember love, I’ll be back
just as soon as you say my name.”
The sky deeply sighed,
knowing there was nothing she could do.
Her arms felt so empty, dark, and Sunless.
She mumbled his name
with only the winds howling as her answer,
it was far too long a wait.
But soon she was distracted, like every other night
when her admiring eyes watched the beautiful Moon.
White as a freshly polished pearl, his strong glow,
had her completely mesmerised
and his moonlight cast upon her left her breathless.
She didn’t like this one bit,
couldn’t fathom the reason either,
the attraction and the magnetism
she felt towards someone who never cared.
Neither was he wasn’t gentle, nor down to Earth.
Only basking in his ever magnificent beauty.
Sky felt guilt and remorse,
to find solace in someone else’s rays,
and couldn’t bear to think
that she was just another cheater
to her lover.
