Words are very powerful. You could either make someone or break them. Always be aware of what you say and how you say it. I believe words are from the heart, not the brain.

No matter what people say about your writing, if it's a passion of yours, just you keep writing and improving.

The Night Sky

The night sky is a vast city of diamonds,
littered with stars,
the full moon stands out,
a perfect, glowing circle,

There is a chill in the air,
one that is refreshing yet bites,
makes my cheeks go pink,
makes me zip up my jacket,

Nighttime isn't the best time for a stroll,
but who cares?
I need to freshen my mind,
find some comfort in nature,

An owl stares at me as it sits on a branch,
it's orange eyes unblinking,
I hear a rustles in the leaves,
as a snake slithers away,

I pause for a moment,
startled and frightened,
having caught a glimpse of its green scales,
shiny in the moonlight,

I resume walking,
the darkness swallowing the light behind me,
I feel slightly uneasy,
I should go back,

But I don't want to,
not yet,
I'm enjoying the silence,
although it is rather eerie,

I look up at the night sky and smile,
how I love those stars,
they've twinkled almost every night,
small lamps of light,

Soon, I head home,
feeling far better now,
peace fills me,
how I love being under the night sky.

    I know it may sound weird but I enjoy night sky at 4 a.m. which technically is morning but that when I wake up.

    Sorry to comment on one of your pieces but I just wanted to somehow let you know how thankful I am for you reading all of the pieces I've published. I've always felt unsure about my writing and your support really meant a lot! Again, sorry to comment on a piece of yours but I just wanted to thank you and make sure you see it somehow. :)

    This poem was really well done! I love how you depicted the night sky with such vivid imagery! I especially love the line "the darkness swallowing the light behind me." :)
