Luna watches and wonders

of what it is he dreams

as he rests.

 

He lies sweetly –

clutching the blanket

tight against his chest.

 

Ah, if only she could squeeze

close to him without

troubling his sleep!

 

Alas! His cell phone rings

and back to the sanctity

of the closet she creeps.

 

Lunatic: “affected with periodic insanity, dependent on the changes of the moon,” from Old French lunatique, lunage “insane,” or directly from Late Latin lunaticus “moon-struck,” from Latin luna “moon.” (Online Etymology Dictionary)
