Once long ago,


Luna met Mars


And piece by piece


She collected his stars.


She observed the galaxies


Reflected deep within


And admired his cosmos,


And hung them with pins


But as Mars stepped backward


To give Luna his commends


He spotted something beautiful,


Dear Pluto,


Suspended;


So gracious,


And so small,


He wondered,


Dear Pluto,


Who loves you, if at all?


Luna was broken,


Weeping asteroids from her core


Mass destruction


That Humanity would ignore


Luna sobbed, and she cried


Chipping her stone,


Becoming hollow inside


But without a soul,


She grew unable


To draw her creatures close,


And transforming


To be nothing


but a small, frail ghost


While Mars kempt to Pluto


And Luna kempt to the coast

This is a love story between Mars and the Moon, Luna. It tells about the downfall of the moon, and how it lost gravity.
