I know this girl who perceives the world
a little differently
she helps people understand
the things their minds don’t see
she speaks about the universe
how small and insignificant it makes her feel
the thousands of stars
some close some far
they soak her up and make her part
of the earth and its natural art
she is in this wide universe
a person so tiny and small
that when she zooms out
she’s unsure
if she’s there at all

I know this girl who befriended darkness
and dances in the light of the moon
at night she comes alive
her body and soul collide
her true self comes out
she doesn’t need to hide
a peaceful sensation
everything feels in place
she breathes in freedom
breathes out rest
closing her eyes
trying to make it last
until the sun comes up
