Reply # 2: Selene to Endymion (the distance between us)

 

 

After awhile, your sleeping figure has caught my eyes. I, the goddess of the moon personified, have my gaze set upon you

I smiled to myself so I could endure not reaching for your face

 

Standing at the edge of your life, dearest, If only I have known, I would have thrown everything away to be by your side

 

In the darkness of the night, though you never see my stride or hear my cries, you shall have my wings so you too can fly. To be closer to you, it seems, this heart desires to know the stories of your life above the sky

 

Why are you making that face? Here I am. Flying over you with my winged-chariot.

 

The tides change and the strength of the waves are becoming different, do you perhaps cause them to stir and shake? – Would you call my curiosity greed?

 

I was with you as with the starry skies every night. Since when did you and I become this close? Can I move even more closer? You see,the heavenly footpath I’m tredging is distancing me further away from you.

 

 

In the darkness of the night, though you never see my stride or hear my cries, you shall have my wings so you too can fly. To be closer to you, it seems, this heart brightly desires the path below the sky

 

Why are you making that face? Here I am. Flying over you with my winged-chariot.

 

For a Goddess to act out of foolishness over a mortal who’ve chosen to have an everlasting sleep—

 

It seems you are more than special as I can’t flip this virtuous heart around.

 

I hover over you, hover over your ears to whisper you my name, Selene. But just like the wind words won’t reach, love can only pass us by.

 

What Special is there for you and me?

 

 

In the darkness of the night, though you never see my stride or hear my cries, you shall have my wings so you too can fly. To be closer to you, it seems, this heart’s full of fluttering desires how to just fall down from the sky

 

Why are you making that face? Here I am. Flying over you with my winged-chariot.

 

Hovering over you, whispering to you til I can be with you.
