The lunar effect .....verse

Laying here awake at three am
I can only blame that damned moon
once again
why it has to push and pull at my soul
I'll never
understand
And yet are we not just so much
emotional liquidity

Say what you will but it has it's tentacles
in everything we do
For instance
Her eye catches his
and later
they lay satiated
and as if stoned
on each other
needing a fix
they will never part

And yes
I am just as bad
but at least I know
I can feel the rising tides
grinding my internal shore line
to sand
I get up and look out at the full moon
holding my shaking hand
over my eyes
thinking
please
let me go

But the tides ebb and flow
and so too my emotions
like so much storm
wreckage
maybe I should move more towards
the equator
Away from the "Bay of Fundy "
these highest tides in the world
or perhaps I'll just
dive in and act a fool
like everyone else
instead of suffering
alone


Took the picture in the magic place called New Mexico - the enchanted state !

A beautiful,picture painted here. The moon can effect much more than just the tides can't it Ed?

Grandmother Moon does have a powerful effect on us at times. Beautiful photo and deeply emotional verse. I like this verse. Well done, Ed.
