"I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people." - Vincent van Gogh

one day

my father bought me a telescope, so i could venture through galaxies

far and wide. the lights twinkling in the sky were the most beautiful thing.

they brought me joy like nothing else was ever able to do.

distance was never a problem, for i had the key to open the door to

an entirely new world.


one day

the telescope was destroyed in a relentless storm. i could no longer

peer through that lens - the stars now seemed a million miles away. 


that joy was suddenly expelled from my heart. 


i guess i could consider you a star, too ; you're so far away, and i'll

never be able to reach you like i used to.
