Star Far

If I'm walking the streets of a city
covering every square inch of the continent
all its lights out
and empty of people,
even then
you are there...

Since you left me at eight I have always been lonely
star-far from the person right next to me....

From
Franz Wright's "Flight"

I have felt "star-far" from people, events, the flow of life around me for years now. The
circumference of my world turning smaller until it contains merely me and mine. Only I had not known to express the feeling as being "star-far".
