Lunar Love

By Laura Ditto

How lonely the moon must be 
to have finally met a friend, 
yet only take what has been given, 
and hand it out again. 
It yearns for some attention 
and blisters in the sun, 
but gives the light it has received 
and leaves itself with none. 
The moon it only loves 
and cares for all it sees. 
It takes not what is given— 
instead, it sets it free.
