For No Reason

One moon

Countless stars

Blanket darkness

Bringing cold chill,

This night is no different

To many nights before


For no reason whatsoever

I can’t find a smile.


For no reason

At all

That darkness


Enveloping me.

And then

From nowhere

And for no reason

You spoke to me.

Your words

So many,

So unexpected,

So generous:

One person

Countless messages

Blanket feelings

Bringing warm belief.

You broke me and

A smile appeared,

Bright and beaming,

From the inside out

For…no reason, at all.
