That stealing Moon.

17Nov04

Shut out that stealing moon

She knows too much

she takes you by the soul

shut out that stealing man

she takes, takes never to give it back.

shut out that stealing moon

She is a cold white ball

the icy steel robs me of my heart

shut out that stealing moon

the moonflowers do not grow.

They cannot.

shut out that stealing moon

she is a wicked, sly thing

that stealing moon

she brings despair

silent cries of wretches

shut out that stealing moon

her silence sits heavily on my heart

shut out that stealing moon.

she steals.

she takes.

she does not return.

that stealing moon.

coldness

and sorrow.

stealing

moon.

    “shut out that stealing man”
    The 4th line in this story – Is this MAN or MOON???
    Please correct me if I didn’t understand this properly!!!

    Sorry…it’s a typo…but then, when I re-read it, I kind of liked the man instead of the moon…
