A Breath Into Silence

United States

She likes sugar, notebooks, and existence. A dreamer, scientist, and musician. In love with the night sky. Incurably shy. Always willing to listen.

It's nice to meet you!

 i wish you could tell me what i am doing wrong
because the sky is falling down
and a long time ago the world was bright
and the sun shot golden thread through windowpanes but
now it has fled down behind the horizon, leaving me in
the darkness to wait out the night

i wish you could tell me when i started this downward spiral
because i can't remember before
and i can't imagine an after
and i can't imagine a single sheep
only a long and endless night spent
with the stars strewn across the heavens, where they are
just outside my reach

....it is always now, just past midnight,
that the solitude presses down between my shoulderblades
and i feel the earth's gravity pulling me down
