Distant Star….

I dissolve into the night,
Surreptitiously, just like the mist with the fog,
Pieces of caprice, bits of a malady turbulent,
My nails grow slowly and curl around it,
I wish sometimes that this stays,
Embedded in my memory factual,
For it brings me relief,
The coldness of a distant star………..

  1. I love all of it. Especially the part about fingernails growing and curling. It is beautiful imagery. Old light from a distant star, ancient memories – each nearly forgotten but not quite gone – quietly converging at a single moment in time.
