"People are screwed up in this world. I'd rather be with someone screwed up and open about it than somebody perfect and ready to explode." - Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story


Stars
poke through the ebony folds of night
stitched into its soft fabric
Tangible
they sit curled on the tips of my eyelashes
like tears yet to fall
Distant
I scoop armfuls of them with my eyes
until they become entangled with my dreams
my slumber saturated
with the gentle curve of the moon
and the shimmer
of falling stars
