Luna

I pursue happiness
like a moon trailing the sun
as it sinks and rises
to the other side of the earth,
desperately, hopelessly.

I catch a glimpse, now and then,
of its blinding light from afar.
But its warmth slips past my fingertips before I can even realise
what it means to escape
from the chains of the night.

Then darkness comes clawing in,
and I’m just another sparkle
in the sky, among the stars.
