Stringing The Stars Together This work is considered exceptional by our editorial staff.

I am super glued together


By the conversations at midnight


With the girl I love


And the sound of rain falling down


In the dead of the night


When sleep evades my grasp


Unfortunately,


I have this tendency


To fall apart all at once


However,


I don't need you to try to reconnect


All of my tattered pieces


Or attempt to string me back together


Trying to figure out how my lines match up


All I need from you is to stay


Hold my hand


While I do my own patchwork


Because I know exactly how to


Reconnect each line on my body


And form it into another constellation


All by myself


And all I ask from you is to stay


While I move the stars


Back into their proper place

I really like all the figurative language and imagery you used. I also enjoyed your message about how you are the only one able to fix yourself. Keep up the great work!
