A Story by KCthelastboyscout

A dream I have taken too much time to analyze

Upon a night sky, I chose you for being the brightest star. Wherever you can be seen, I travel in your direction. When you disappear behind the reign of the sun, I stop and rest until the day becomes night again.Even beyond the heavens, your glow radiates so brightly, it could be seen from the furthest corner of the earth. So many miles I followed your light until one night, you were gone. What happened? Why did you go away? I had no answer to my questions. No direction to go. Enough time passed until I accepted my own reasonable truth. Your light shined so bright, for so long, you eventually burnt out. Now you are gone, lost among the other stars. I become disillusioned of what my purpose was all along.Alone,in an unfamiliar place, I am stranded. Every night, i look at all the indistinguishable stars in the sky. Now I have a new purpose...Waiting for your return.

Metaphor, yeah.
"My love is like a star." Simile.
"My love is a star." Metaphor. Got it.
Where I stop getting it is when the star no longer behaves like a star so it can conveniently behave like an angst driven adolescent human. The stars I've seen aren't that flexible. Maybe, "My love is a stray cat."

Hope & longing for something so familiar, so comforting that without it one feels lost & without purpose. Very profound and beautifully written. I really enjoyed it.

This made me feel like you were feeling super great knew what was going on in your life then one day all was not well and you felt your light had burnt wasn’t feeling as you did before like you lost your identity for a minute, I’ve been there, I might be wrong but it really connected

Neat...this is one of those that many different people can identify with, depending on their interpretation and experiences. Very cool.
