A Memory for Patterns [February 15th | 45/365]

my mind screens memories
on the taut skin
of my eyelids so
I never shut them

only in sleep can
I trust that dreams
overwhelm memories like sunrays
shining on a candleflame

keeping alert is necessary
when guarding against sleep
the brain easily tricks
itself into changing modes

there are no lines
between stars only darkness
we have to be
trained to see constellations
