You know nothing, you know nothing at all
How could you know, you’ll never know anything at all
SWANS – You Know Nothing
You had a chance to know me. I stand here, open hearted and ready to be by your side in every part of life, if only you wanted it.
You became a ghost.
You chose another who will never choose you.
You got scared and ran away.
You dismissed me because I don’t fit a preconceived mold of what you think you want.
You just weren’t paying attention.
You took me for granted, because you thought I’d always be there.
I am bigger than that. You cannot break me. You cannot extinguish the light in my eyes, the small light in the darkness that is me, just because you were too blind to see it. You have nothing in your hands that you can offer me, because you missed what was right in front of you.
And I will keep moving forward until I find those who DO see me, and I will be happy. May you find happiness as well, even as you move away from the galaxy in which I reside.
Soon I’ll see your light like a pinprick in the sky, like the other stars that I see when I look up at night. I’ll wave at you as you pass overhead.
Hello, star that I used to know. Goodbye.
