I wanted to look at the stars, let the wind cradle me-
And close my eyes,
I looked up for the stars, found none.
Only darkness all around.
I returned to the narrow space from where I came
Hoping the day I close my eyes, I would find one.
"When will you have kids?" They ask
"What do we have to offer them?" I think
Air to choke up on,
Dark clouds everywhere with not a creak for light.
Run,run they pressure me
I am okay to crawl
Scared to be too loud.
