Moon Ate the Dark Writing Prompt Challenge: Alethia Green

He strolled through the night

nothing but the stars to guide him in his current flight

his legs worked much just from memory

As he looked over his shoulder not  at the way things were

but how they could be


He was walking away from the soul withering plans made for him

From a  future he refused to claim 

And the woman they had chosen for him

Bland and tasteless 

The Cookie cutter same


He fled this darkness that had no light

searched for her 

His love, his light

His breathe quickened 

His vision blurred

 as she stepped into sight


He walked away from the money

The birthright

He knew it was only the start

But when he looked at her he understood how the moon ate the dark
