Tell me

Ask me about the stars and the constellations.Tell me how childish I am for still making a wish over a falling star.Ask me about the last time I cried.Convince me that a sign of mere frailty is not what tears are.

We are headed south

The sound of thunder woke me up in a sudden shock. My eyes were soft with sleep and my body limp. As I threw away the blanket and sat upright, a flash of white came zig-zagging down the sky, striking the earth and rattling everything. For a second, the room lit up and its every detail became visible. I looked at the clock. It was 4 am. A loud rumbling followed soon after and my heart swelled in excitement.
