I felt the stars beneath my feet
as I ran, alone, through the night;
heart pounding, lungs heaving,
not thinking, just leaving.
With all of my might,
I ran through the night –
the stars, they carried my feet.
I felt the stars uplift my wings
as my feet left ground and met air;
hair flowing, not knowing,
just jumping, just going.
Not a thought, nor care,
my feet met the air –
the stars, they lifted my wings.
I felt the stars caress my flesh
as I swam though the cloudless sky;
eyes searching, heart yearning,
wind tearing, head turning.
Mind wondering “why?”
I swam through the sky –
the stars, the warmed my cold flesh.
I heard the stars whisper my name
as I rushed through the void with fright;
soul calling, enthralling,
mind reeling, heart falling.
Blinded with fright –
the night stole my sight! –
The stars, they whispered my name.
