Stars Above

Alone, like the stars above
we all stand alone. in silence solitude I greet you
I can only smile that I shall perish
long before you all will
so the loneliness can't haunt me forever

But then that's it. You feel not lost...
Your solitude is a given. something that cannot change
But mine is a variable. something i seem to have the power to change
yet remains constant through my helplessness
