alone

"as a child I felt myself to be alone, and i am still, because i know things and must hint at things which others apparently know nothing of, and for the most part do not want to know. loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain values which others find inadmissible." -carl jung

these words are so accurate and true, and yet i have no words to explain why, not even simple ones.

what do i do?

what do i do?
i call you my friend, but are you really? 
we never seem to come to agreement.
every time i speak you slam me.
whenever i ask you something your response makes my heart hurt. 
would it really make a difference to you if i was not in your life?
i feel like every time i ask you how you truly are, you just say fine.
how can someone so shallow be my friend?
how come even though i have known you longer than any friend here you are the least closest to me? 
have i ever done anything to cause our relationship to rip?
they say opposites attract...but that is definitely not true for us.

the shooting star

walking home from her weekly class meeting, she gazed up toward the sky. through the power lines she saw the most extraordinary shooting star zip across the night sky. the star was enormous and blazing orange. she felt like she could have reached out and almost touched it. the day had been depressing, but that one glimpse of the shooting star turned her whole day around.
