New Moon by Abigale Louise LeCavalier

I don’t find it
much a tragedy anymore
that I cant count backwards
from ten;
it’s part of the sickness
I call my life.

Trembling once in her arms,
I don’t know how not
to go back to her,
I don’t know how not
to reach for her at night.

She was my world once
as I was her Moon,
she could forget about me
in phases
and did,
until I was new.

I am a new Moon always.

Yet she is always
just keystrokes away
to rattle my cage,
make me like the Cheshire
and small like Alice,
my mad hatter.

And I will sink into the bottom
of another starry night
broken and damaged,
as she casts her shadow
upon me still.

Not willing to let me go
in a Sun soaked sky.
