Fractals of us

It’s a weird feeling when you watch the stars at night. And you spot that one gleaming star. Always wondrous. Always humbling. Always aligned. Always bright. Distracting you from every other star in the universe. It invites you. Seduces you. You can’t help but feel it watching you back. Staring back at you from a place you cannot fathom or comprehend. A place you want to be in, but know you cannot survive. A place that ultimately and will only be in your heart.

That’s what we live for.
