The absence of you

The moon – rust red, like dried blood –
Cut a hole in the blackness of the night sky
Letting in pale, luminous light
Highlighting the darkness
Giving more depth to the shadows
In the eerie stillness of the night

A dying moon – full just five days ago –
Now fading and darkening
Now bleeding its light into the night sky
Haunting, weightless, melancholy music
It settled heavily upon me
In the absence of you
