Telling My Secrets to the Stars

I awoke

with a start. 

The taste

of your kiss

still lingering

on my lips. 

For answers

I look

to the night sky,

telling my secrets

to the stars. 

The man in the moon

listens

but offers

no guidance.

  1. It’s odd: I have the exact opposite experience. Kiss or no kiss, I can’t get that damned moonatic to shut the hell up!
    Great work Penny.
