breathe stardust

-inhale
the tingling night air breathes down your skin,
hands splayed lazily against the cement, with none to hold.
above is a canvas of midnight black and twinkling, timeless stars
far, far away but here to stay.

you trace out constellations, connecting the dots
suddenly you are a child once again, and the dark sky
is your drawing paper. logic leaves you and in its place,
imagination and a pure, peaceful mind.

the cool night breeze rustles your hair;
it hums you a lullaby that lulls you to sweet dreams.
the crescent moon watches the gentle rise and fall of your chest
and smiles a smile that is the only light in all of the darkness.

exhale-

tonight you do not jump off the rooftop, because the night view is breathtaking and the stars and moon plead you not to. you are not alone; you still breathe despite the choking reality. you think to yourself, this is the beginning of recovery and self discovery.
