In the Square under the Stars

It’s another world

Lying back and watching the stars 

Dim points of light shining through a violet darkness

Watching the night run by

 

It’s another world

Staring up at endless entities infinitely larger than you  

Forgetting the world

And letting the world forget you

 

It’s another world

To close your eyes

And find only the same scene when you open them again

Because the darkness exists not just in us

But also above 

With the stars 

 

 

Presently

What is it about the present

That makes it so difficult to seek refuge in?

Too often we find ourselves 

Unconsciously lapsing back into happier memories

Floating away and untethering ourselves 

From the reality at hand 

And I guess that is the hard thing to face-

The plain, unconcealed reality of the present 

It’s 2014 now

So stop writing 2013 in the dates

The past is something now

That is too far away to be found 

Starlight

When you’re wide awake on the other side of the universe 

Don’t be blinded by this life 

Remember dear, that the city lights are not the stars

They shine bright for you

But die as quickly as the nights pass

The real stars

Lie hidden beyond plain lights 

But with the essence of radiance 

They explode where soundlessness unites
