The Moon and Her Followers

I am the moon that hides behind a smoky screen,
partially hidden in the dark.

Secrets get passed from lips to lips under my light,
and I collect them all.

Night after night, humans call to me.
They wish, they dream, they love.

I touch them, but all I see is my reflection staring back at me.
When I cry, they collect my tears in glass jars.
They collect it as if it will help them on their journey, but it won't.

I tell the humans to follow the sun, for she shines brighter,
but for some reason the few never leave my side.

The moon has always seemed magical and mysterious to me. At night when I stare up at her I feel comforted but when I wrote this poem I wondered how the moon would feel. Being alone in the sky doesn't seem all that fun.
