late night conversations with the moon

there is something different
in the way that you touch me
and i have spent so many hours
trying to put my finger on it
i have had late night conversations
with the moon
listening to his lovesick ramblings
about the sun
and trying to put into words
how your hand on me
touches more than just skin
he speaks of the heat he feels
in the presence of his love
and the cold darkness of her absence
i just nod in agreement
because no better words can describe
