i have stood glaring into the darkness of the night,
and i have told my stories to the stars in the sky.
i have asked the moon for answers i wouldn’t want to hear,
and silence has never been more loud.
Countless times, the wind has caressed my face and dried my tears,
More than once, i have looked to the heavens for reason,
i have worn a smile even when my face would rather not,
Pretending that my world wasn’t falling apart.
But the Nights have been kind regardless,
they have listened to my stories of love and hurt,
of loneliness and friendship, of betrayal and hope.
they have gotten me through my lowest moments,
and filled me with strength to face the sunlight of a new day.
