When I met a lonely star up in the sky

Both are stars;
One is up in the sky,
And the other down on the earth.

The one from the above saw the crowded earth
That’s with multitudes on it.
And the other saw the starry night
That’s with starry sky in it.


                   (Google Image – Painting by Vincent Van Gogh)

But, the star from the earth didn’t see
The immense distance between each star.
Neither did the star from the above notice
The wide chasm between each person.

In its place, one sees the starry night,
And the other sees the crowded earth.
In fact, both forsake a reality.
A reality which tells:

“In essence, you both look the same.
For, how lonely are you both.”
Though you own the modifiers:
Starry” and “crowded”.


About Britton

It's a chattering of an eccentric who often can't control his vagrant thoughts while he is wandering around in search of the unknown. Well, it seems like, this world is an asylum N it invites each N everyone to have a stroll through this asylum. Further, for me it's a madylum :) Humiliating mockeries all around, crushing anguish within, boring day-to-day chores.... oh! He has to wade through all these. :-( N the weary traveler should plod on. No matter what.

  1. Great entry!

    The truth that we don’t see when we can’t look deep.

  2. hmmm should they exchange places ? Unless they both open up their heart and really see and except each other as they are ,the chasm within one’s self can only become greater . <3!

    You say so true, Britton! Are your words of wisdom!
      A star can not be seen, regardless of the distance, if you do not want to see … or if you just refuse to see it!
    It will need to see in depth!
    Thanks for your words of wisdom!
    Have a wonderful Sunday and many blessings! 🙂
