I have discovered that perhaps I take some things for granted.
Lying here for the first time in a while I feel a little lighter,
The edges that were once so harsh have began to soften,
And the place where your hand once lay in mine feels a little less empty.
For tonight I have found myself staring at the night sky,
Removing any barrier between me and the fresh air it brings,
Finally feeling as though I belong,
A storm no longer moving so quickly,
Instead slowing down,
Allowing me to reminisce in the beauty.
To be one with the night sky is such a small but oh so fulfilling feeling,
Have you ever felt it?
As though the darkness is soothing every part of you that has ever been broken,
Holding my heart so gently,
I feel nothing but peace.
Night times were once a place where I lost all control,
Where you are left with nothing but your own thoughts,
And those thoughts were the ones that destroyed you,
At least they would try to.
Yet on a night like tonight I want nothing more than to be consumed by the night sky,
To feel peace in knowing our loved ones are never far away,
Wanting to dive right in and explore the beauty,
Swimming in oceans of delicate clouds and picking up shooting stars on my travels,
I have learnt to slowly open my heart to its beauty.
I could spend the rest of my live as one of them,
A night wanderer,
Seeking nothing but brightness within the night skies.
