.53 [the moon]

I.
are you suffering from happiness extremes?
do the stars seem farther away than ever?
you never answer my questions
i'm just left with my imagination

are you fine and well and taking on the world?
are you cerebral and cautious and planning your next move?
all my questions remain unanswered
i may as well think about the moon

II.
moon lights up my nights
let's me know when to sleep
reminds me to think of you
makes me wake when it's done

i can't make it stop
and i want you to know
it's changed and estranged me
from those that i love

maybe someday
that light will extinguish
then hummingbird flutters
won't crowd round my door

i'll find some respect
and maybe a fortune
my life will change for the better
and the dawn will have come

Life is but a dream...
We live to die and die to live
and love some where...in between

then hummingbird flutters
won't crowd round my door...love this line, visually pleasing.

I lovers it! I think its the moon that wakes you even though it reminds you to go to sleep....the reminder doesn't seem to work.
