The Stars

by Saul   Apr 17, 2009

Tonight I stare up at the stars.
The sky is clear without a single cloud.
The air is cool and still.
The stars hold my eyes captive.
In their shimmering light they seem to communicate.
In this moment I feel so small and insignificant.
They speak of other worlds and wonderful experiences.
My heart grows jealous and my eyes swell with tears.
I long to be among them to not feel so trivial.
Instead of the one looking up I want to look down.
I feel like there is so much more to this existence.
I feel like I along with everyone else is forgotten.
This planet is one out of billions but this one is so small.
I now know that there is life among the stars.
That there are races out there that ignore us.
We have been cast aside to this part of space shunned.
The truth makes my heart break along with my gaze.
I stare down to the ground this earth that goes ignored.
I go back in the house and try to forget what i just saw.

    Very deep, profound write, I loved it. The nightsky brings many thoughts to our minds... it is so immense.
    Very well done.

    Very nice work Saul. I love the imagery. I feel like I'm looing at the sky with you. I like how the mood chnages from something peaceful like watching the stars to something heartbreaking. Nice work. Nik
