{January 11, 2015}   That Same Night Sky

sky4

you stand by your window alone

staring into that same night sky in front of my eyes

does it look identical from your perspective,

does the location make up for the lack of warmth

between each frozen word

or do you make a wish,

hope for the best you can handle

and say your prayers as you sink into sleep,

does it change anything when you mouth the words

like memorized bible verse

or does a silent scream do the trick

head down shoulders back soldier,

carry on the mission you signed up for

until you drop,

from here

i can see the stars clearer when the moon goes away

sometimes i count them but usually,

just stare

at the wonder,

and it’s in the middle of the night

when i stand near my own window looking up,

i hover between believing the impossible possible,

or the other way around, doesn’t matter which,

the moon will always make it’s rounds and try to fuck me up

i shrug it off each time after awhile,

that cliché pull of the moon yanks me tight against my will

yet i always manage to hang on long enough for an angel to swing by

always at the most opportune moment when i need it most, (mostly)

and somehow makes me save myself

just watch out for those angel-faced beauties with a snake of the charmer in their eyes,

they can perform miracles, just don’t let on you know
