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

met the beautiful Moon.

White as a freshly polished pearl,

and his strong glow,

had her completely mesmerised

and his moonlight cast

upon her left her breathless.

She didn’t like this one bit,

and couldn’t fathom

the reason either,

the attraction and the magnetism

she felt towards

someone who never cared.

He wasn’t gentle, nor was

he ever 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.
