Loves Desire

As the stars fill the heavens above
His heart seeks what he cannot have___
The perfection of her soft skin, her face

The love that lies in her eyes, yet not for him
Beauty has molded time, radiant in starlight she shines
Pale as the virgin moon she walks through the night streets

"Surely what secrets she endures, her pure glorious features
Come, from the constellations, a gift.... not meant for mankind"

Our human fate seems to be to always desire the unobtainable.

a gift not meant for mankind...often there's this magic in the things we can not have, not meant for us..and sometimes it's good just to enjoy the beauty from afar..

what a sad life though if she truly sees herself above everyone...life will assuredly find a way to humble that...

Love from afar may be one of the loneliest feelings in the world. Accepting that it will never reach the immediate is perhaps the biggest emotional sacrifice one can make toward their happiness. Beautiful and sad.

I don't think she is above everyone. Just lonely.
