from by The Shark



I like how the moon reflects perfectly
solar radiance there for all to see
reminds me almost constantly
of how everything burns eventually

In the sun

I used to believe in most anything
the moon and the stars even fever dreams
the darkness was so comforting
but out here where it burns, I can see clearly

In the sun

it is the one
you can't behold
the shining sun
the closest one
the star above

the energy
that we absorb
the blinding light
that burns our skin
that burns our eyes

the hydrogen
the oxygen
the vapor that we breathe
that gives us life
it's origin

lies in the star that
among the ones
the billions in
the milky way
we call The Sun
