She lives amongst the stars Thoughts are galaxies away It’s safe up there so they say
Eyes like shooting stars Fly across her sky Glances of belittlement, pity, judgement Soar fast across her sky
Silently dimming their twinkling lights Mindless carefree flowing thoughts The ones they say her galaxies are made off Are laced with unseen meteors of doubt, uncertainty, worry… Meteors that leave craters as big as the moon In her “perfect” galaxy
Sleep is blurred by the constellations of anxiety Her favorite ones are imperfection, failure, loneliness Beautifully woven, tangled and outlined Family.. friends…. lovers… Intertwine and form the lines - connecting These celestial masterpieces.
The stars in her wide brown eyes never dim Shinning bright, giving off an aura of warmth and light. They see a girl- a daydreamer As Orion’s belt wraps around her waist tight. Binding her to this utopia they say she created.
Head in the clouds girl Oh how I want to be you … they say To inhabit this wonderfully created planet you live in Called La la land
Visit if you dare she says…
Appearances can be misleading. We are carrying our own burdens so choose kindness when you can. Don't judge a book by it's cover.
See morning rolls around, and brings another April snow day
This sleepy town stirs on white streets under a white sky And the only lights that shine are the ones in traffic-- red and yellow watercolor on the windshield. We get home, the lights are down. We lie in bed under the blankets and dream of spring... In barrooms across town others gather ballads and sing.
Drive these roads See for yourself the sky flat, where meets it the earth and the stars glimmering cold And Polaris promises to bring you home Even if they let you down, you'll rise up off the ground when you hear morning sound, maybe it’ll bring one more day of sun.
