sides-of-the-light

Its just more beautiful when it appears bigger, a bit reddish... Not so bright, just bright enough to single out pits of darkness...
...
Even more beautiful if its a bit cloudy, lightly cloudy and my head will just paint pics on it with my eyes closed and when I open them, I see whatever it is that I wanna see...
...
I like it when it cold out, goosebumps kinda chilly and maybe rattling teeth... Forming dew...
.. Just a way to clear my head once in a while find some peace... Find time when I'll talk to people I miss and not seem crazy to anyone... And I'll tell them how boring my day was, maybe laugh it out to make me feel good bout myself..
.. Paint their faces on the moon, and also the weird smiles so I can be happy without having to pretend.
...
And tell them about the amazing people I meet. And also the not so good humans....
.
Tell them about how stupid I feel about letting some of them down.
Let the cold breezes punish me for that.....
..
.
Say good bye and turn around to where the moonlight isn't that much bright.....
... Turn to my reality....
.
Talk to people that I can't face, pour my heart out in songs they'll probably never hear...
...
Then turn again to the moon, laugh it out for a moment before I let myself fall onto the grass , fall back to that blind spot where the moonlight never seems to hit.

I enjoyed reading that. It's hard to articulate one's feelings and you did that very well.

BRENDA ARLEDGE from Washington Court House on January 28, 2020:

Amani,

I find this full of feelings of sadness.

Wanting to embrace the peacefulness one feels when their gazing at the night sky.

I wish we could keep that feeling...but life seems to make us forget.

Nice read.
