Imagine a never ending night
A never ending blackness
No stars, no reason
An empty abyss.
A sleep that refused to cure the tiring ache of bones
The pull of gravity crushing down on your chest
Leaving you bedridden.
I squint and I can see the stars
They’re still there, only a farther distance away
I close my eyes refusing to believe the mirage clearly designed for further self destruction
And for the first time in months the darkness fades to give way to a dream.
