Fairy Lights

I cannot see stars on my window
So I put up tiny light bulbs on the seams of my wall –
I’d watch the fake lights dance
‘Til it starts getting blurry
And then melt into a smudge
As I close my eyes and fall into a coma:
A reminder that hope and happiness
Might not last,
But emptiness is just as temporary.
