last night i lay in bed, looking up at the stars and i thought to myself, where the heck is the ceiling?


I can see
their shadows
and hear
their murmurs.

They whisper
their secrets
softly,
in my ear.

They complain
that I am
the only one
to listen to them.

They wander
the earth
moaning
for eternity

If only
I could
help them.
If only

I like this a lot, it really fits in well with your other work, you could definitely write an excellent collection of poetry.

This is pretty good. I like the format and the image this poem instills. Well done :)

Nice!  Did you mean to leave the last line like that? "If only"? Not that I'm objecting.  It's a very unique way to end a piece, and leaves you hanging/wanting more.
