the stars aren't shining.
i'm squinting at the sky
and nothing's there.
it's been this way
i'll think that i can see
some short of gleam
and i get all excited
but it's nothing.
it stays dark.
it always stays dark.
how can i live somewhere
so dark?
i feel like i'm in a box
being forced to crane
my neck back
and wait for something
to come from the sky.
but nothing ever comes.
and nothing is ever coming.
i don't want to just sit here forever
but i don't know where
the stars are.
