A Starry Pelsall Night

Anxiety high, like the stars in the sky.
Like sparkling eyes in a momentary dream.
Staring out into the night, every sinew is heightened.
As you stand alone trapped by your thoughts.

The thoughts of the future, of looking at the past.
Just stay in the moment, its cosy, you own it.
Looking up thinking, it's hard to stay mindful
When you think of the things that shape you and make you.

Looking up at the sky, the cloud shades the moon.
Your solitary moment over too soon.
You're startled, you're rattled, by an involuntary sound
From your daydreaming bliss, your moment of calm.

Back to Reality, you start making lists
Of all the things that need doing.
You take one last second to remember your moment
When it once was you, yourself, alone with the night sky.

Mr Aitch
