He said “I believe I will return to my planet and bid farewell for the stars.”
I remember breaking down and telling you I am so very tired.

Feeling the guilt within the honesty.

Making it all about myself wasn't in this fucked up nature of mine.

I am but a fish whom can get lost within depths for a second only to provide happiness

to another only to again vanish from sight.

I am a million emotions rolled into one.
Insane to you and deeply intelligent.
A complex mystery and addict of his own creation.

I am old beyond my years and foolish within my dreams.

He said he was bound for his planet then vanished into the night.

I do not believe I found myself but I have caught a glimpse

in many that do not share my thoughts.

Somewhere in those stars I dream eternal.

I was so very tired of it all.

Sometimes we have only to dream.
And try to understand.
