A Tragic, Cosmic Love Story
The sun did not rise that day,
too unwilling to leave its cozy bed
of cotton candy clouds.
The moon got overwhelmed,
unused to being stood up
on its daily morning coffee date
with its best friend.
The moon ran away,
drowning itself in the blackness of the galaxy,
leaving the sky duties for the stars to handle,
and no one was there for the sun
when it finally came back.
