On a day when fate and time stood witness
two star crossed lovers breathed their last.
They say witnessing a falling star
fulfils any wish,
but these two stars fell to earth
wishing only to belong to each other.
If the stars can forgive the sun
for shunning them away
into invisible darkness,
I can learn to accept
that every kind of love
that comes into one’s life
isn’t necessarily meant
This life seems
so comparatively dull
when I look up at the night sky
and see your face in the stars.
Things are calling me away.
My hair is being pulled by the stars again.
– Anais Nin
His soul was dark as night, but
without darkness, no stars could
shine, and without a doubt, his
stars are my favourite sight to see.
When I spoke of him, I always commented on
how empty his soul must have been
to rip through my heart with such callous ignorance.
But then I remembered that
darkness is the only way
one can catch a glimpse of the stars,
and despite the brutality of this blinding darkness
it never counteracts the incandescent blanket
which will always shine brighter.
I don’t believe in the universe conspiring to bring anyone together. There are no stars watching over us, nor are they pulling us toward each other. We are either the missing piece in each other’s puzzle of a soul, or we’re not. Our love does not, will not, transcend this earth.
Stars should not be seen alone.
That’s why there are so many. Two people
should stand together and look at them.
One person alone will surely miss the good ones.
– Augusten Burroughs
