Dark Side

There’s a dark side of my heart

that emerges

like the moon

and says that we should stay apart.

But oh

why be so cold

when the thermostat says it’s 90 degrees

and all the ice cream cones

are melting?

Why go live

in your freezer?

Why insist

to the rest of the solar system

that it’s so difficult to be



Maybe it doesn’t need to be hard

to be


“On the dark side of the moon”
