Moon? Is our Longing Shallow?

Moon? Is our Longing Shallow?

Moon, you are in an endless drama of chasing your partner the sun day after night after day, your story does not have a happy ending? And as for me, it makes me so sad, that something that was supposed to be intimate, turned out to be so shallow. Tell me moon, are all fairy tales shallow? Or better, don’t answer that! Your answer will probably ruin my love for a good story and with that my existence as a…
