stepping through the dark chocolate stillness
i walk into this peaceful, secret place
my indigo sky.
piece by piece by piece by piece
the night falls
i catch it on my tongue
like snowflakes outside of the library when i was young.
it tastes of dreams and first-star-i-see-tonight wishes.
children make so many wishes and dreams.
we should make so many wishes and dreams.
there's the moon
as the sun steps into her light.
a steady stream of hope peaks knowingly from its depths
patience holds me in my step
i sink into the air.
my mind climbs invisible trees
to grow closer.
i earn the first glance and the promise of day.
my crimson sky.
