"How happy is the blameless vestal's lot
The world forgetting by the world forgot
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd"


Starlight, star bright,
With your luminosity shining,
Without bound, without fright,
Will your cradle my soul tonight?

Small pleasures and enchanting delight,
Soft treasures, the projection of moonlight.
Will your protect my heart
Throughout the fight?

Dreams of love, fantasies of flight,
Phenomena of nature, hopes of new heights
Mere distant ideas with fading possibility,
Escaping my sight.

Painted smiles, masks that hides the
Gruesome scars and violent bites.
Hope in the display of a shiny, slick knight?
No, a beacon of abandonment,
A false hope wearing a tin-foil lie.

Starlight, Stars bright
With mind-sweeping oblivion,
With incandescent delight,
Can your radiant beams of light and beauty
Save me from the ruins of my heart tonight?


The author's comments:
Unrequited love is like an addictive acid-- a poison that is the sweetest of beverages. Upon learning this, I observed stars and the amount of faith people put in falling or shooting stars. I guess that this is the product of the two.
