I look up to the stars

while they look down

By HufflecupPublished 4 months ago 1 min read

I look up to the stars

and I understand the urge to worship something

it gives something to aspire to

it is nice to feel someone is watching over you

the desire to transcend the cosmos

willingness to become become mad chasing a dream

I look up to the stars

until the day the stars fall

was it the desire to be closer to us

artists obsessed with their creations

had they become exhausted with perfection

hoping to come to peace among the flawed

I look up to the stars

and I weep for what was

can greatness never be achieved

is it a burden

that forges hopeless souls

About the Creator


I want nothing more than to dedicate my life to writing, so I figured I would start here to test the waters. I will be submitting stories to as many communities as possible.
