Worried moon

There’s a downcast doleful moon tonight,

A little darker, not so bright,

Its pensive, anxious, nervous light,

Withdrawn, restrained, confused, uptight.


There’s a heavy heartbreak moon tonight,

Apologetic, waek, contrite,

No sweet caress, no lust to touch,

No lasting kiss, no ‘come on love’.


There’s a wistful worried moon tonight,

A slow decaying lonesome sight,

Your hand in mine, but not for long,

The moon knows all, it’s never wrong.


There’s a tearful tortured moon tonight,

The saddest moon to grace the skies,

No goodnight kiss, no can’t let go,

No running back, no ‘hold me close’.


There’s a mournful moody moon tonight,

A last time, go now, goodbye light,

A subdued glow, a moonlit street,

A last farewell to you and me.
