"Most of my life I liked to play
with the lights that fell from the sky
though they died within a day."
Vacant eyes and a simple personality
"... I thought there was only ever me."
and she says it in a voice so flat
I pulled her body against my own
"Now you're not alone."
She asks, "what's that?"
Hey sir, you're so unusual.
Mister? I think you're beautiful!
My dear, you seem so magic
but, my love, you're just so tragic
There's so much you don't know
so much you've never been shown
..but you don't seem to care
It's something I've never seen
Now it's suddenly surrounding me
These lights are everywhere!
Gorgeous! Gorgeous! Light fragments!
They're my stars (My affections!)
Gorgeous, I think they're so gorgeous!
Whatever they are
Excuse my corrections.
"Mister? I think this is kind of unusual."
"Well, yeah, but don't you think it's beautiful?"
All righty, bear with me, these might be some long notes.
First off, here ya go, Jeff. This is written specifically for you. :)
Bold = the sky-creature speaking/thinking/something
Italics = The young girl speaking/thinking/something
This is the sequel to Paper Stars! I didn't want to give them a star-crossed-lovers bit, so instead I elected to go with this type of story.
The young girl lives by herself, and therefore has no comprehension of love, relationships, or even loneliness. When the sky-creature arrives, she cannot feel love for him, or at least understand if she is. On the other side, because she is naive and childlike (not to mention a human while he is a creature of the sky) the sky-creature doesn't, I wouldn't exactly say respect, doesn't view her as his equal. He does love her, but in some ways he doesn't see her the way a lover should. He is subconsciously patronizing her.
Over the course of their time together, he falls deeper in love with her (and comes to see her as his equal, and treats her as so) while she develops affections for him (though I don't think she quite understands them yet).
They're not exactly lovers yet, though they have formed a casual relationship. :)
Ah, excuse my rambling. :P
