    Reach for the stars (poem/short story)

    Awoken by the sound of silence. I search the darkness for a creature of a night. Nothing is there. Nothing is moving. Nothing is breathing. The common feeling of being alone fills my veins. Again I lay searching my ceiling for the stars. The colour is right but there are no stars. Only a small crack in the corner. Hiding under the covers I drift back asleep.

    Again, awoken by silence. I check the window, hoping for a familiar face. Nothing is there. Nothing is moving. Something is breathing. The common feeling of being insignificant returns. Again I search the world for a star. The colour is right and they are there. ALthough they look small the are large, just like me. Hiding behind a window without curtains I drift to an unknown world.

    Again, awoken by silence. I move from the window and search the halls for a loving figure. Nothing is there. Nothing is moving. There is definate sound of breathing. The common feeling of being surrounded circles me. Again I search my place of existance for a star. Not the right colour but the stars are much bigger. Hiding in an open hallway I sneak away from attention.

    Again, awoken by silence. I creep into a well known room thinking of memories. Lots are there. Someone is moving. I can feel the breathing. The common feeling of suspence lurks under other covers. Again I sneak forward to find a star. Not the right colour but a true star uncovered. Hiding beside a bed I wait to be noticed.

    Again, awoken by silence. I climb to a bed knowing the security. It is there. Someone is awake. Then notice my breathing. The common feeling of love in infront of my face. Again I pull the covers up to seek the star I know is there. Not the right colour but the star is beside me. Underneath covers I have found perfection.
