Night sky is black

The Daily Post prompt is: understanding.

A cleave poem, because I haven’t written one in a while.

Night sky is black/ shot with light

A sheet pierced with holes/ a million stars

And a light that shines behind/ showing the way

From another world, I long to go/ to a better place than this

Though the weight in between/ so dark and full of pain

Stirs the air thick with mists I can barely see

Wings white and strong will bear me/ across the feather-light sky

And a story guide my way/ to where the spirit is free.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
