For me, the moon is a sign of insomnia. It sits with me through the many hours of sleeplessness that torment my nerves until they stretch as tightly as the telegraph wires that hang outside my window. We are equable companions: spending lifetimes in silent orbit; waiting for the world to awaken around us and provide much-needed distraction from our fractured thoughts.
“The moon is a loyal companion.
It never leaves. It’s always there, watching, steadfast, knowing us in our light and dark moments, changing forever just as we do. Every day it’s a different version of itself. Sometimes weak and wan, sometimes strong and full of light. The moon understands what it means to be human.
Uncertain. Alone. Cratered by imperfections.”
― Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
