We were the couple others admired
Yes, we were inseparable
An extension of the other
I, the present moon
And you, the companion star
We caught the eyes of those below
Making them believe in love
Aspiring to be like us above
Yet it was all an appearance
Me- reenacting what I knew,
A reflection of reciprocated affection
You- giving coldly expressed attention.
These distant galaxies of which we take part
Shape us into these pedestaled works of art.
