“When it is dark enough, you can see the stars.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
covers pulled up over one’s head while lying in bed
afraid to open
lest the darkness take over
blackness invading the innermost being
I have experienced that darkness
lived in it
let it overtake me.
Into the night sky
to see the stars shining their light.
“Do not complain beneath the stars about the lack of bright spots in your life.”
― Bjørnstjerne Bjørnson
Stars shine unencumbered
night after night
whether covered in clouds or visible
they are still there
shining in the dark.
“Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”
― Sarah Williams, Twilight Hours: A Legacy Of Verse
“I think that we are like stars. Something happens to burst us open; but when we burst open and think we are dying; we’re actually turning into a supernova. And then when we look at ourselves again, we see that we’re suddenly more beautiful than we ever were before!”
― C. JoyBell C.
I have always preferred
night to day
darkness over light.
My darkness and shadows will
They have been
a part of me
since I can
I embrace them fully now.
“Even as a child, she had preferred night to day, had enjoyed sitting out in the yard after sunset, under the star-speckled sky listening to frogs and crickets. Darkness soothed. It softened the sharp edges of the world, toned down the too-harsh colors. With the coming of twilight, the sky seemed to recede; the universe expanded. The night was bigger than the day, and in its realm, life seemed to have more possibilities.”
― Dean Koontz, Midnight
“Happiness is always there. You just have to choose to see it. There’s no point dwelling in the dark and ignoring the light of the stars.”
― Carrie Hope Fletcher
