Dear Stars,

I have a bone to pick with you. You see, when I was six, I called myself the nowhere girl... and I coloured myself a soulmate. I made him on crumpled sheets, with broken pieces of crayon, on a playground that was too busy wondering whether growing up entailed stealing their mother's cigarettes and their father's dirty magazines (I suppose I was already wise enough to know that growing up meant choosing one of the many ways of breaking yourself in two.)

I hope you remember him, stars...he was important to me (My best friend threw that drawing away on my seventh birthday and told me that someone like me was not supposed to have such dreams.).

He had hair as ebony as deep onyx and a smile that never grew up (Peter Pan would have been proud).  He was magic in soul form, and smelled like cinnamon and the earth after it has rained. His eyes rivaled a lions on the best of his youth, his words were story shaped. His skin was an ink coloured canvas of wonder and even in crayon he was a sight of awe.

I wished upon YOU, stars, when I was six years old but I suppose nowhere girls have no business wishing upon stars that have had homes for a million years. Because almost twenty years later I am still the same old annoying nowhere girl. And I suppose I hide it better now but even crayon made soulmates can see that.
I got a response actually.

It went something like this:

I aim to make the nowhere girl a somewhere girl.. so that your wish may become true, for if stars aren't there to be wished upon then why do we look up when we feel down.. Why do we feel the need to wish upon the stars for all our biggest hopes and dreams, Believe and so shall you receive..dare to dream and never give in because the things in life that are really worth while never come easy..but you will always have my love and care..always. Liebe dich.

Kurt.

So the stars did their job after all. :)

This idea was fantastic. (I say that way too much, i'm sorry). But the hook was great, and the story was very nice. Great imagery, idea, and stuff. I've run out of words to describe how much I like this, but i really do.

I wished on the stars for my own soulmate and it took years for that wish to come true. This reminds me of that constant wish and the magic I still feel knowing that the stars do work too ^^

Lovely work as usual. I really love the similes and description you painted with your words(I love stars, pity that I don't see them much over in the city here). I think you're already a on-the-way-to-reaching-stars girl ! Will you ever write a long story?

This is so beautiful ^^ I love the description of your soulmate and how even in childish creations in crayon you can see the realistic way in which he would act and look. The reference to Peter Pan was lovely, and this entire piece is very meaningful <3

One must be brave to dream, to know what he/she desires and fight for it.
The dreams of such persons is what turns this world into something worth of living.
So thanks for sharing this. And thanks for dream.

don't worry! you will have a somewhere to belong to, in time.
I just got married to my found star. I always used to have dreams about wandering the streets alone, and sometimes i would sleep walk outside my house. I always felt a need for friendship, not just love. I found him, my somewhere man. I don't wander anymore. I know you'll find him. Even when you're not looking. :)

In a different sense from you, I suppose I am a nowhere girl...but I'm looking for my somewhere. And that's where I'll find my somebody. =)

Thank you for sharing this. It was touching to read, and beautifully written with an almost childlike innocence. Even though it is short, I love it. I'll favorite this, and turn to it on days when my heart feels heavy. Again, thank you for sharing. =) :heart:

You are really a beautiful writer. This was poetic and creative, deep and emotional, and completely relatable. I rarely (well, never) comment on prose or poetry submissions, but I had to tell you how much I like this.

Do the two of you realize how gorgeous you both are? (not just together but as a person)

Sorry to disappoint, love, but you will never be a nowhere girl, more like a traveling gypsy that stops everywhere but calls only one place home.
