Perspective of an Audience Member

the mouse that roared's picture

The stars are lonely beacons now:
Lights of others' lives, energy from others' sorrows.
They call for me to join them,
But what have I to give?
These leaden weights inside of me weigh me down.
Where are my emotions?
The stars, they play and wink,
Beckon, beckon...
But I close my mind
Watching, always just watching the light.

I like it.
It's interesting, heartfelt, and I can
relate to it.

matters is what we do."

oo, that sounds very mystical

oo, that sounds very mystical and cool. Nice!

the world turns beneath my feet,
and only my breath is still,
in the living night.
