A Home In the Stars

by Melissa Taggart, featuring Henry Taggart
Prompt: write a disjointed, chaotic story in which nothing makes sense

the darkness settles in the moon laughs as the earth flees from my footsteps i turn suddenly at the sound and the moon grows bigger in a purple sky i rise above the world the moon shatters the pieces falling upon the world like glass i reach out my hand to touch one and it bursts into a thousand flowers that float out of my grasp looking for homes among the stars my feet have left the earth my lungs burning within the stars swallowing pieces of the moon and i rest on the wind that carries me ever nearer to the stars
