Towards the Sun

In my heart, puzzle pieces flutter like moths in neon lights,

In my heart, puzzle pieces flutter like moths in neon lights, but they test my limits,

In my heart, puzzle pieces flutter like moths in neon lights, but they test my limits, wanting to break through my heartbeats to touch a star.

Their heartstrings stretch against gravity,

Their heartstrings stretch against gravity, scrape the edge of heaven and kite through the clouds,

Their heartstrings stretch against gravity, scrape the edge of heaven and kite through the clouds, tasting wind and starlight.

I feel the magic take hold as my mind puffs the substance away.

I feel the magic take hold as my mind puffs the substance away. My dreams sputter into vapor,

I feel the magic take hold as my mind puffs the substance away. My dreams sputter into vapor, catching fire in the moonlight as supernovas flow through my skin.

But dreams end, and like falling tides,

But dreams end, and like falling tides, I come back within myself.

Transfixed in a curtain of midnight,

Transfixed in a curtain of midnight, the puzzle pieces constellate like zigzags stretching

Transfixed in a curtain of midnight, the puzzle pieces constellate like zigzags stretching into a mosaic of reflections in rivers of living time.

It's a tug of war between dusk and dawn,

It's a tug of war between dusk and dawn, hardheaded morning wins the game,

It's a tug of war between dusk and dawn, hardheaded morning wins the game, so I bear the weight of constellations

and walk towards the sun.

@dogslinwriter's Afterword It's my 2nd collaboration with Alex, and I had a lot of fun writing this even if it meant me dragging him into writing :P I am jk. He is very talented, so if you liked it, its his magic! Thank you for reading. <3
