November Moon has stolen Summer’s kiss and cast it into the abyss. I watch from frosty windows as she covers the sky with black velvet robes and adjusts her crown of artic icy sparkle.
My cheek feels her chill and brings the light of her last escapade and offense. Heart stops and aches a little – tears freeze halfway down, throat catches breath before it fogs the pane. I do not welcome the snow but I miss it now. I am a child of the Sun but the Moon brings dark winter into my embrace and I hold steadfast. Stubborn.
To forgive and forget is a lovely cliche – but it has no use in the real world. To forgive is divine, but I am not a god – just a mere human, frail and volatile, confused and conflicted, sad and regretful.
I want to forgive you. I try to forgive you. But I can’t forgive you. Why? I ask the November Moon but she only smiles her sly, albeit radiant smile and eases further across the sky. Making me want to follow her but I am too weary.
It’s true. Love is not for me – the magic and joy will always elude. Pass by my door and dance after more deserving souls.
Where has the November Moon taken Christine?

This is amazing, sad- there is a rawness beneath and between the perfect word choices- like bare skin through a gauzy gown.
I love this, Annie.
Thanks – things are what they are, yes?
Yes such a rawness – Beautiful writing, whilst reading I was thinking I wonder if the December moon will bring more healing qualties for the November moons heart.
Well, anything is possible and sometimes if you wish really hard, wishes do come true.
