all abt libra

aries:
falling fast—
images blur into
smudges of colors 
void of meaning

taurus: 
a lullaby lulls 
you to sleep,
filling your mind
with soft clouds

gemini:
overheated machinery—
your body, overworked,
burning to make room for
spare thoughts 

cancer:
a careless stream hides
rocks slicked with water;
how careful you are to avoid them

leo:
blinding light keeps you
in the dark,
constantly fearing perceptions

virgo:
groggy eyes and shaky hands
bear witness to the trial
of which you’re both judge and defendant

libra:
awaken spring with 
wildflowers’ scent and
enjoy the lack of calamity

scorpio:
a metal tang haunts your tongue 
a phantom of past adrenaline 
and all the things you’ve done

sagittarius:
wisps of laughter
reach your ear like
bells that linger for years

capricorn:
grappling with the intangible,
you find infinity’s presence
embedded in finite things

aquarius:
pretend not to hear them,
their words must not propel you
in a force of opposition

pisces:
within your dreaming sleep,
you live a life too vivid, too rich
to ever replicate awake
