moon halo

moon halo


the days drifted endlessly
dazing us, keeping us away

from the other side

where the unknown waited


still we reached for the sun

side by side, hand in hand

already feeling the cold of the season

that came to embrace us


our dreams got lost

behind gates woven out of stars

all that is left for us now

is the halo of the moon.
