The Stars Above Me

the stars above

I have loved the stars so very fondly, but fear the darkness that will inevitably meet me.

So many times I have welcomed the moon and found nothing but nightmares.

I bask in the sunlight. It is only then

I can count on my daydreams to take me to a better place,

A place filled with my Secret wishes.

If only my daydreams could carry on through dusk and beyond the sunset,

My nights wouldn’t be filled with such despair.

Too soon, the sun leaves and darkness fills the sky.

A magnificent sea of lights dances down from the heavens

I succumb to their beauty and wish my love upon a star

For what I swear will be the last time.

I fear nothing and trust one star to light

The night sky for an eternity.

This star will meet the same fate as those before it, leaving me in a

Deafening darkness.

I stand alone again,

Vulnerable to the terrors of the night

Until the sunrise rescues me.

If only I could live in a world of eternal sunshine, there would be no fear of night.

I will fight the sun setting with all of who I am.

For with the next night fall, I will be forced to see the beautiful stars laughing at me.

They will taunt me with their brilliance and beg my wishes as they always have.

I pray the sun spare my heart.

Then, and only then, will I not fear the pain of night.
