In the stab of the night,
when there is no moon
or modern light to guide you -
there will be stars.

They will burn themselves out
with the vehemence with which
they shine for you.
They will desperately radiate
their message to you
across lightyears of dead air,
they are full with it.

They are children
holding their breath
until you beg them to stop.

They are waiting for you
to be ready to hear them.

In the ache of the night,
when there are no whispers
or echoes to guide you -
there will be stars;

and those stars will be couriers
baring these words to you
emblazoned with their royal seal.
They will be eternally pressed
in the spaces between space
and space.
Somehow in the cracks
of infinite nothingness
you will find my words.

Wedged behind a stereo
until you think to move it.

They are waiting for you
to be ready to feel them.

In the grimace of the night,
when there are no tears
or smiles to guide you -
there will be stars.

They will be distant eyes
full of my love for you
that will watch you hesitate.
They will pierce glass
and brick
and always find you
when you are looking for them.

They will follow you
with the rapt attention
of maternal endearment.
They will watch you wobble
and wait.

They are waiting for you
to be ready to know them.

In the stab of the night,
when there is no moon
and there are no whispers
or tears to guide you,
there will always be stars.

Stars that are a thousand lives away.
Stars that have already died,
unbeknownst to us,
but still remain.
As my love for you.

If I am gone,
you will not forget the loving words
that I sent to the stars
to be sent back when you need them.

They are waiting for you
to be ready to hear them.
I wrote this about the stars and my poetry and about love. The stars have always had a strong impact on my life because I lost my sister when I was young and used the stars to communicate with her after she passed away.

As I grew older and I experienced other types of love, I fell into a long distance relationship. I remember telling him that if you miss me, go outside and look at the stars. because they are far away, but you can see them. and if I go outside I see the same stars. We are close enough to share them, so not so far away at all. The concept of stars as messengers came to me. Sometimes they give me messages now. Sometimes I send prayers or hopes for people to them.

A star I am looking at now, may have been dead for thousands of years by now. So if I send my love to those stars, they will be reflecting them back into the faces of those I love long after I have died, and long after the stars themselves have to.

AMAZING <3 Dear Kate, this is so beautiful! It's so wonderful how you can express your feelings <3
I was reading this while I was listening to ''You raise me up'' by Secret Garden. It goes so well with each other!
you're very kind to write this, Kate:)

I never know what to say about these wonderful things you write. I feel like I should know, and let you know how much brighter your words usually make my day, but you practice some sort of weird witchcraft that renders me wordless because I can't seem to find the exact shade of meaning to get my appreciation across the way I want to. So now you'll have to suffer through these occasional rambling quagmires of weirdly chosen words. Hopefully you'll manage to get my meaning, somewhere in there.
