Retired from the Earth

i retired from the earth
and now, i look to the stars.

sole audience to my strife,
i weep with a clap of thunder and lightning strikes to
catch the first tear.

i dance with the moon’s shadow until i am dizzy with stars
and can no longer hear.

fairy wine never touched my lips, but as time perspired,
i realized that genuine joy should always feel like this.
