Twice as Many Moons
Twice as many moons as I‘d hoped,
Have passed before this brief encounter.
And though it came as sweet as fresh-water June,
I don’t need another dream to chase after.
Innocent stroll interrupted by poisonous doubt.
Barely noticed –yet highly foreseen–
The swelling of emotion, for unrequited fantasies.
