Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark, in the hopeless swamps of the approximate, the not-quite, the not-yet, the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish, in lonely frustration for the life you deserved, but have never been able to reach. Check your road and the nature of your battle. The world you desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours.

You know, sometimes you just don’t care where the tears fall
On a book
On a page
On your skirt
Streaming down your face,

Nothing seems to matter.

All meaning is gone.
You don’t think – don’t speak
All you know

Is that you are sad

Alone in your own little world of solitude and emptiness
No one else can reach you there
And you may wonder

If they even care to.
Where are they?
Why there?
Why not here?

With me?

Why not here with me?
It’s funny.
Although all you may want is peace,
You can’t help but question

Why anyone hasn’t tried to break that peace.

"To the stars."

This is amazing! (Great writing, but also a reflection of what I've felt for the past while.) Five stars.
