i dont want to sleep. i want to keep chasing stardust on lips i'll never taste, reaching for jupiter when she shines so brightly in the sky, reminding me of all that could've been— could still be. never was.
god, these sleepless hours, the way the stories chase themselves around my head, louder than dreams too fleeting.
there's a silence here, in the night, when everything is still. a promise that everything could be okay. could be.
and then the dawn puts stardust to bed, and i'm left chasing something i never even got a taste of.
