Milky Way Hope

Nighttime and behind my eyes it’s dark

but the stars still twinkle and spark across

the Milky Way backdrop of my eyelids

heavy as titanium.

 

I wake to the words: “At first there was light.”

As the sun bleeds through the windows of my soul

I imagine an asteroid blasting me clear

out of this solar system into another.

It gives me hope. I get out of bed.
