Pull of the Moon


Pull of the Moon


Like the tides

I am affected by the Moon

Its attraction can be overwhelming

Pulling me in and out of sleep

Yanking me from my dreams

Then pushing me back

Same dream different time

Its gravity moves me rapidly through

Time and space

From dreamscape to dreamscape

Until its power wanes

Dropping me exhausted

In my bed to greet the early morning
