I never knew their names,
my companion stars.
but i was familiar with their comfort.
i’d squint at those little lights,
winking in sympathetic synchronization,
until my eyes,
blurry with a thousand tears,
began to cross
and then closed
taking me into sleep.
In my dreams,
I was free really free.
Here, nothing could touch me.
I was gliding,
high above the ancient knotted trees
of castle courtyard,
with cool wind blowing in my face.
I felt safer.
I felt braver.
I have an intricate mix of emotions reading this… Don’t know why.. Beautiful lines 💕
Ah to dream with the stars. Very nice.
