When I lost the moon,
I heard a soft, sad tune,
As everything came apart,
The will to carry on no longer wanted to start.

But ever so slowly,
Things started to mend,
Now to the moon’s call,
I do not bend.

I’ve stop caring,
‘bout the lunar calling,
No longer am I staring,
At the beautiful moon.

Pain of lost,
And touch of defeat,
Are soon to be overwhelmed,
By the busyness of feet.

Strings of iron attached to me,
Will no longer be.
Severing the ties,
As a small part dies.

Let gravity go on strike,
For no longer will I feel,
That useless pull,
For I am just pushed.

We adore chaos because we love to produce order.

A beautiful, graceful piece. Death is light as a feather...Is this a reference to having a "Near Death Experience?" I do believe in our ability but I think the title is off. Near death I think applies to those of us who experience dooming illnesses but recooperate and a death experience is when we actually stop breathing, leave this realm, into what it is that's next for us but return. That's why people make claim to what they saw-they caught a glimpse of the hereafter.

Death is light as a feather, duty is heavier than a mountain, is a quote from a book series that I like. that line will more likely stay in my sig. What i got from that is that dieing is easy, but duty is hard. I wrote this after I realized that I stopped looking at the moon.
