Among Stars and Forgotten Galaxies

Papers strewn across the floor
trash piling up in the car
life in and out of chaos
and then gone without a trace

Turning away from sworn duties
and infinite possibilities
I step into the light
of the unknown
and try to turn on
the light switch of confidence

My passion reeks of approval
a heavenly scent of nothingness
that has yet to be touched
and then it fades
into the blackness

Where has my faith and dedication gone?

Somewhere lost in space
I guess
among stars
and countless hidden and far away galaxies

I find them intriguing.

My mind rages with curiosity.
