You aren't supposed to give up, even when it's hard; even when it's soul-crushingly hard. But the stars are always right above your head. Waiting.

Reach

by rabbit

And as I reached up to pull the stars from the sky,

I just barely missed;

My fingers brushed the dusty clouds,

And the bare branches of trees caught my skin as I fell back to earth.

I landed hard, stumbling on sore ankles adorned with shiny new bruises.

I shook my hair out, dislodging the residue of the sky above

And crouched down once more, the light of the moon reflecting in my eyes.
