I’m a nihilist dreamer,
One who finds happiness and serenity in gazing at the stars.
Letting my anxieties drift away,
Into the constellations,
And merging with the void,
I breathe in the cool night air,
And let my mind drift away.
The city lights dim the array of stars,
But the brightest ones let their light beam through,
Lighting up the sky with incomplete constellations,
And allowing the imagination of the stargazer to fill in the blanks.
