Star Gazing

Star Gazing

A Poem by Prismgirl

I am terrified to be

Your star to gaze upon,

Because gazing is never

Quite enough for me,

Yet it is exactly

What I ask for.

Why do I always expect

People to go above and beyond

For such a broken soul

As mine?

I receive exactly

What I ask for

And still I am unsatisfied,

Simply starving for more.

The hunger is insatiable,

Yet still I give and give In to it

Letting it run my life

Until my time is out

And still my want for more

Is astronomical.

An old poem that I was very proud of at the time.

You make the heart feel like it has an interstellar reach. Your words make dark matter feel like a rainbow that we can walk upon and touch a universe that seemed like it could never be reached.Sometimes I feel like a black hole constantly wanting something I don't have, be it love, be it attention and the funny part is I can never hold onto any of it. It's stellar that even though the universe is enormous, i'm not the only tear in space that feels broken.

A very inspiring poem. Sounds of the enter cries of one that has a longing to be excepted for the wonder that it truly is.
