[ This is a vent, don't pay this too much mind ]

I fell in love with the stars.
Since I was young, I would lose sleep just admiring them from afar.
They were a constant in my fast-paced life.
They brought me comfort, light.

When we met, I compared you to the stars I loved so much.
Because, just like them, I could only love you from far away.
If the stars were bright, then the love I felt for you was even brighter.
But, as time goes on, the brightest stars are the first to go out.

Now, as I lie awake in bed, the stars I see out my window don't comfort me.
They only hurt me more.
Because, as I watch them flicker, I'm only reminded of the way we used to love each other.
