Happy Stories

A poem

I am not good at writing happy stories.
my stories have the hue of the darkest sky.
I steal the glimmer of stars to make them shine.
In my stories, I lose myself to find that path again.
In my stories, I hide.

Don’t search me in those words —
I walk out from there quietly, after writing the poem.

In my stories I quietly die.
