“stars”

the first time
she saw through
those crystal colored glasses,
everything, truly everything
came into focus.
the world had flown by her a blur,
but now
it was like she had all the time in the world.
it almost was if she had been blind,
but those crystal colored glasses
was the cure.

she had the sort of eyes
that were perfectly alright
when things were nearby,
but it was all a haze
when things were far away.

even the brightest stars in the milky way,
she saw them as insignificant blemishes
on the face of the sky.
in all her life, she had never truly
seen the beauty of the sky.
but tonight,
she could see a sky full.
she looked up
and it was like walking into the darkest room
and someone had switched on the universe.

s.x.
