free until midnight
when my glass slippers
shatter on the pavement
trailing blood
i stumble home
shoeless and
care free

the wounds heal
from inside
the doom lifts
and the
sun rises

marked on the pavement
is the path i took
i follow the light
leaving drops of blood
retracing my memories
with compassion and
no regrets

the wounds heal
from inside
the mood shifts
and the
moon rises

standing in my
own front door
i chant the names
of all the stars
one for each
of my dreams
*my mac named this one, for now.
