I once knew a girl…

I once knew a girl

with constellations painted on her soul

and starlight

running through her heart

I always wondered what she was doing

when she looked up to the sky

with longing in her eyes

as if it was the only place

she could possibly belong.

I thought maybe she was living in a world

entirely her world

that she was stuck

in her imagination

but i was wrong

she was living in a world

far bigger than this earth.

she belonged amount the stars

the planets

and the galaxies.

 

people asked me where she went why she left and never came back

in time i only smiled

for they would never understand

where she really disappeared to

but i know

what happened that night

when she left forever-

she finally returned home.
