Maybe
you should start being more
honest with yourself.

You will never be a
constellation or
a sunspot on the
moon; only fallen
heroes belong there,
and your life wasn't
pitiful enough to
cavort with the stars.

The gods love a
good tragedy, but only when
they're the ones
writing the playbill. It
isn't any fun when the actors
forget their lines and
break character.

(better draw the curtains
before the performance morphs
into a comedy)

You say "I'm sorry" but in
reality the only thing
you're apologizing for is
leaving before the show
ended and reading the
wrong horoscope that day.
"An unexpected, artificial, or improbable character, device, or event introduced suddenly in a work of fiction or drama to resolve a situation or untangle a plot."

Where's one when you need it in real life?

Flows like water.  I love it!

 

And I wish that such things happened in real life; maybe that's why nobody likes seeing one in fiction...XD

I absolutely love this. It flows perfectly, and the seperation of the lines works wonderfully. The second stanza hit me as all too true. The third stands the same way, and the last has beautiful imagery. Overall, amazing.

I love this. And if I ever visit. I will post random pictures of me and horses. I love horses. And I like my plot. If the gods want to mess with me, the universe already hates me, so they need to jump on the bandwagon.
