charmed

moths ( via Magpie Tales )


if i could
i would steal
the sun 
& the moon
swallow them whole
and 
call off the morning

if i could
i would tell you 
everything 
i've done 
or failed to do
 letting the night fall down
unpinned & unafraid

if i could
i would be the star
of your 
40 watt galaxy
& never the moth burned
in the pull
 of your gravity
