This is a poem I wrote last year when I was feeling particuarly lonely. I think it's one of my best poems that I've written.

The stars light up in your eyes
As you rise from a long night's sleep
Foggy vision as you step to the mirror
And ponder your beautiful reflection
Sometimes you wonder if you are
The only one to know the inside
It's never simple to see the real

You wonder if you're really awake
Cause everybody's moving too fast
You can't seem to catch up
You're always stuck in the past
Dragging your feet along
Trying to play along alright
Worried you'll wake up too late

Have you missed your sunrise?
The stars blanket your sky
Even when they're not to be seen
You're a spectacle by night
As you dance to the unheard tune
Your grace is unseen by the masses
And no one's there when you wake
