Star Sketch

I have sketched the stars
into the backs of my eyelids.
I have lain there, captured in the darkness –
one minute, hours, forever.
I have allowed the light to break softly,
little dust mote soldiers
marching under the weight of my faith,
carrying more lost images –

of you holding me in your arms in the shower,
blood running underneath our feet
and down the drain…
your fingers gently washing my hair.

I have sketched the stars
out of that moment
and when I need to remember that you love me,
I close my eyes
and bring it back.


Thank you to MindLoveMisery for the prompt.

  1. Love is such a strong poison, if it diverts towards healing, it makes a God out of a human,
    But if goes towards hurting, it even makes Gods act like humans…..
    Love is eternal bliss or eternal destruction….
