I swear the moon never was so big and glowing.


I swear the moon never was so big and glowing

Cancer makes it so you can't catch your breath.
It's not your blood counts but the moon,
which has never cast a darker shadow

so bright it feels like daylight
so huge you’d swear the seas were swelling.

The days come too quickly.
Time never felt so finite
before you were looking for the moon.

It seems this breathlessness is here for good:
I thought a cure would make me cynical again,
I thought the beauty of the world would wane.

It turns out I am transformed.

The world has realigned somehow
the planets must have shifted
because I swear the moon never was so big and glowing
and the hours show no sign of ever slowing.
