Dressed In Nothing But Moonlight, by Drem

October 10, 2013

“I’m the color of moonlight

so I think

that’s why

some people

often can’t see

me,

the young woman

who dreams all day

and stays up all night

to write

and talk

to people she’ll never meet.

Do you think

that at some point,

taking into account

the span of an average human’s life

and linear time,

do you think someone could ever see me?

Like, really see me?

And, more so,

do you think someone

might not hate

what they see in me?

Don’t be nice.

Just tell me.

I tell myself,

that to the contrary

stance

my mother takes

when she helps me dye my hair

and asks about my dates,

that I don’t believe

anyone will ever

willingly run into the

moonlight’s arms-

out to me,

when they have the sun

all day

to hold

and befriend,

 and go out to brunch with.

Brunch is great.

I’m tired.

And I’m young.

Being forced into

the moon’s shadow

makes me

even miss the sun.

There’s just too much competition

between me

and the 9-5,

long summer days,

beach hats,

sunscreen.

Me in my moonlight

gets nothing.

Dressed in just moonlight,

even the stars laugh at me.

I’m a joke to them.

The whole thing.

I learned the sun, the moon, and the stars

actually aren’t friends at all.

But hey, they see me.”

  1. being a night person, I can relate t this, and I have never felt I fit in anywhere. I suffer from anxiety and depression, and I have always had to have a sanctuary where I could retreat, but I lost that, and now I have to try to make it on my own, which is not going all that well, but I keep writing. It helps, but when I see everyone else’s stuff, my own attempts, thet seem sophomoric and meaningless.
