Self Love

By Kovine

The elusive morning moon
Hangs lazily, offering silent reassurance 
Deep cavities filled with light 
Spill over during the waning days
Leaving a dark wet cavern 

Hold me close
Skin against skin 
And let me breathe you in
Unable to see you when I look into your eyes 
I can only see myself
