Starlight / a fragment of writing

Staring up at the milky way,

she felt herself disappear

and become a star far, far away

from the pain so intense.

The iron railings that trapped her,

The concrete that held her, all fell away

And her soul opened up to the night sky.

She joined the constellations, and

Shone her starlight upon the little girl she left below

Wrapping her tender heart with a warm glow, and

Holding it through the darkness.
