I tilted my head to the sky. Every twinkling star stood proudly forth. The full moon illuminated its surrounding clouds, creating a mesmerizing, bluish haze as the four of us just stood and stared out at our surroundings. I couldn’t remember ever feeling such a pure state of serenity until then, here with the run-down, dirty remains of construction, with the stretching vegetation, and the souls of the insane. The moon’s allure drew me in, making me feel as if I were the smallest being in existence. Time didn’t seem to have relevance. All I’d wanted was to put my life on pause and submerge myself into the most beautiful night sky I’d ever seen.
