I've Been Known

Location

I've been known
 to think endlessly of the sun,
  burning so hot it feels like hellfire
   setting my heart aflame and
    searing through my veins.
 to obsess over the future,
  its anonymity like a ghost
   haunting my every move and
    residing in the corners of my mind.
 to stare in awe of starlight,
  surrounded by the vastness of space,
   stretching so far and wide it casts
    a shadow larger than the earth can contain.


I've been known
 to think endlessly of the sun,
  so bright and raw.
 to obsess over the future,
  so far and gone.
 to stare in awe of starlight,
  so sacred and silver.


I've been known
  to think endlessly of the sun,
   to obsess over the future,
    and to stare in awe of starlight.

I've been known
 to think,

  to obsess,
   and to stare.

I've been known.
