Favorite Quote:
You did not wake up today to be mediocre. -Unknown


I push myself, to breathe in,

 

breathe out,

 

the waves of star-tipped galaxies come cascading across the 

midnight sky,

 

they envelop the world so much so that it's as if i could reach up

and drag my fingertips through their silky tendrils,

 

everything is asleep,

 

let loose from the imminence of another tomorrow,

 

i am within my own dream world,

 

hidden inside the fold of a billion years,

 

erased from the past, the present, 

 

even what yearns to continue on,

 

i have amassed a thousand lives in the pocket of this nowhere

place,

 

lying in the softness of my bed,

 

i am here,

 

blood flowing endlessly through my veins as if time hasn't

stopped,

 

but i am not present,

 

my body is but a vision of my full authenticity,

 

i am far away,

 

floating across the great expanse of universe,

 

that would seem to be right outside my window.


The author's comments:

This poem embodies how I feel whenever I lie awake at night, staring at the stars outside my window. Every time the stars come out, I can't help being filled with awe at their vastness and how large the universe is. I've always been a lover of the night sky, and this poem really sums up how I feel when I stargaze.
