Sleeping Under the Stars

I snuck out one night,
to sleep under the stars;
with only a sweatshirt in hand.
i opened the door and stepped into the cold, frigid, air,
feeling it kiss my face
and send chill after chill through my body.
As i nearer came to the open meadow,
only framed on the sides by old oak and white birch trees;
who’s skeletons glowed under the faint moon,
i stopped,
looking up
to sleep under the stars

my breath, taken away, i stood- eyes locked upon the glittering night sky;
marveling,
speechless,
breathless,
dumbfounded,
lost in the heavens of a trillion diamonds,
sparkling ceaselessly,
I had known that this is where i was meant to be:
to sleep under the stars

I let sweatshirt slip from my hand as it fell,
it dropped to the damp ground that had already begun to gather dew,
a glass carpet to complement the diamond ceiling-
that was the room;
the glass carpet had been sprinkled with white moon lilies,
they slowly sprang up to thier complementary incredible other halves in the sky,
i laid down,
to be submerged in this beauty, to be in such a place;
to sleep under the stars

Wrapping my self in the sweatshirt,
i laid on the glass carpet and simply stared,
shivering at the dazzling scene that laid out before me, the stars, so bright, shimmered in their glory,
the pureness of this pied-à-terre;
to sleep under the stars

i dont remember the hurt.
i don’t remember the sadness.
i dont remember the broken life.

to sleep under the stars

I remember dozing,
I remember the cold,
I remember the lilies,
I remember the beauty,
the glass carpet,
the diamond ceiling,

to sleep under the stars

But lastly I remember ,

I remember the Stars…

to sleep…
to sleep…
to sleep…
to sleep…
