I am alone on a lonely planet.  The night sky surrounds me.  Rays of light prick the shroud and beckon to me.  Desolate and afraid, I turn from them.  If only I would reach for them.  If only my soul would drink from them and see the beauty surrounding me.  I glimpse the beauty though the tiny holes and deem them unreachable.  My broken body falls to the dust of the lonely planet and the stars forget me.
