The sky, thats all I saw when I fell. When I came here on this planet. The sky, so blue with swirls of pink and orange, so fluorescent and lively, I wasn't afraid then, I wasn't afraid of the thought that I might never return home. Then something happened, the swirls of a different life that once appeared in that big distant sky vanished and grew ever so dark. Then I saw home again, an enourmous canvas plastered in black with speckles of monotonous stars. Yes, just like the place I came from.

Did I miss home then? Did i miss that place, my home that i had came from? The place I had tried so hard to be free of? I wasn't sure yet, their were so many questions and so little answers.

Then, at that moment I saw them, I saw my answer, fluttering like heavenly angels twoards me. With every color i had so desperatly dreamed of. Every color my brain could imagine.

Their wings like curious eyes wandering all around me. Dots, lines, zigzags and shapes I had never believed could exsist. So full of life and color covering every inch of their tiny wings. Hundreds of them came to me, called for me, wanted me so hungry and needing. But why? Why was I so deserving of there beauty?

Then something extraordinary happened, like a thousand shards of glass they exploded into iridescent crystals like a falling rainbow in such hypnotizing motions. The crystals surrounded me, and began to hover like the butterflies so flawlessly did.

The ground started to sink below me as I hovered along with the crystals. The sky became closer and closer then started to shine brighter. An explosion of light errupted and hit my body all at once. I became a part of the sky, no, I was the sky. Never again did darkness fall over the planet, but only light and indulgent colors.
