Refractions

“I am yours, and you are mine,
and that alone is enough.”

You refract my dreams into the night sky, illuminating this dark oblivion with stars. Those constellations spell out everything I ever needed to know, reminding me that I’m so much more than I ever considered possible. I am yours, as you are mine, and that alone is enough. But you were never satisfied with enough. You pushed me to chase my dreams long past the moon, and though I still have many light years to go, you continue to prove that daring to live amongst the stars is not only possible, it is a reality. And the best part? They put my monsters to rest.

I am so much more
than I ever thought possible.
