Poem -

A DIFFERENT STAR

I am surrounded
Disconnected
I am touched
Yet cannot feel
I am part of a life force
That does not feel quite real

I am quite here
In a body
Tethered tight
And bound
Surrounded by a teeming mass
Observe colour light and sound

Yet I am disconnected
Tuned out
Yearning 
So alone
I cannot find my people
Cannot find my home

I hear the voices call me
Feel a tug
A pull from far
I know
That somewhere out there
My people walk 
A different star.
Marion Price (2019)

Sigh...Here is another write that speaks to my spirit....Feeling my identity is not recognized here and needs to go home where it can understand the world....that different star calling....It is comforting to know that others like you feel that inner tug of war...xo ;)  Thanks for sharing.  Love n Hugs

We were probably sisters on planet X 😀...though I shouldn't joke because I truly truly feel this. It's nice to be understood, you are my spirit sister 💕

This write is wistful and hits me in the heart. How often I have. Gazed at the moon and stars.  Feeling that pull that is really hard to put into words.  You've done well here. Great write Marion

very beautiful write marion. 
i like the sense of isolation 
you portray which is contrasted
with hope.

you are indeed your OWN STAR,
and the darkness around you serves
only as a backdrop which further illuminates the 
beauty and brilliance of your unique soul.

Well sometimes like you, I play with perspectives...the last few years have truly been a revelation to me and I truly feel like this in quiet moments Icarus, I do not believe this is our only reality...IV no answers of course but there is much more to our existence than the material ( I'm not talking about God, I do not believe in conventional Gods) ..I value your input and your lovely comments my friend ( though I do not have an unique soul, but hey, I'm not going to argue😆😀 lol) 💕

Oh, you're touched alright...by an angel! LOL. 
Wonderful writing, as always, Marionette. You are truly the most connected of disconnected people I know, if that makes sense. 

I have no relation to this world, so I'm joining you and Cheerie on Planet X, if you don't mind. I just have a couple of questions: do I need suntan lotion? And will an SPF of 6,000 suffice? Can I bring a ferret? And lastly, is there a Denny's there?(because I might need a Super Slam from time to time). Let me know. 

Seriously, though, sometimes I detest this world so much, and feel so alone, and while I don't want you to feel like that, at least I know I'm not alone. 
Nice write, young lady. 

See you on Planet X(it's not a 'dirty' planet, is it?). 

Hugs, 
Matthew.

Thank you Wrinkly One! (Kidding!). 
I've noticed you've used the word 'bloody' a lot today. Perhaps I should bring some extra band-aids to Planet X. Are you a Brit, young lady? 
Also, is being a tonic a good thing? If so, thank you, if not, thank you, also. I love the way British people talk, so I hope you are British(and not just covered in blood due to some type of murdering thing). KIDDING! You're a really nice person, and I know you don't murder people. Sorry. 
Please don't murder me. 
Hugs, 
Matthew.

Yep I'm a Brit and bloody is preferable to the alternatives 🤪🤪...and be assured a tonic is a wonderful thing, it goes with gin 😆😆😆
