Stare Upwards into the Starlit Night

I stare up to the stars
feeling lost and alone
with wonder in my eyes
are other worlds so cold
are other people as stranded
touching themselves to reassure
hands with no-one to hold

I yell up to the stars
my anger and hate
they seem so far
yet control my fate
it gets to a point
where words aren’t enough
and I break down and cry
leaving another night
that the stars have won.
