“Sapphire Nights”

Some days we run wild while others find us in a corner,

Chasing dreams at 3am or hiding from our deepest fears,

We ought to crave the same thing.

Our rightful space.

Moments to shine.

Careening into a black sky,

Setting it ablaze.

Storms have done their worst and I’ve weathered them at a price,

Looks like everyone lost a bit of their mind.

Sometimes I’d like to be in the wide open at midnight-

Stars overhead and emptiness for days.

A current strong and true,

Pulsing all around me into the ground beneath my feet.

Cacti for miles and silhouettes of jagged mountain tops illuminated in sapphire nights.
