Eyes Wide Open

New Zealand

Hi, I'm Ella. Just a seventeen-year-old girl trying to make sense of the world through words.

Every night, I dream of flying.
stepping out onto the balcony under
the light of the pale moon, 
toes curled over the edge of the railing.

The night is still and quiet.
The trees whisper to one another, the forest waiting with a hushed anticipation.

I stretch my arms wide, and step out into the cool air;

I fall
down, over the dark mountains, 
beyond the restless forest,
to the silver line of the ocean on the horizon
