Dear LTC.

We stand in the middle of infinity. Everything we are is a succession of one in a million chances. So many incredibly small chances happening one after another. If you step outside in the night, look up; you will see stories. groups of stars that have been given hundreds of names, tales of gods and kings, epics that borrow from each told before them.

If you look past the history and the poems, you will see something far more beautiful: You will see stars. Incomprehensibly large collections of gas that burn so hot, we will never touch them, so far away, that we will never reach them. Yet they exist, they light up the night sky giving this break in the dull darkness. How can something so foreign impact our lives so heavily?

Yet we wake up every morning, concerned about how we connect to each other. The 'someone' in your life who doesn't know you exist, the one who took your trust and broke it, the one who catches your eye every time you see them. Why concern yourself with something so small when everywhere you look, you are surrounded by something impossible.

I say this to you, don't concern yourself over that pit in your stomach when you just want to impress them, there is no reason to stress over something so small. You are surrounded by stories, mysteries and serendipity.

So when you feel useless... Look up.

Since you are the middle of infinity.

but no one really knows what they are doing

so I will continue to enjoy my crushes

This is a nice post but it smells like a man wrote it

You are exactly right, a man did write it. A man who spends far too much time wondering whether or not she knows I care for her. A man who worries that he will never be good enough.

I apologise if I offended you, I was just writing what went through my head.

How arrogant would one have to be to be offended at this beautiful post?

Pretty damn arrogant

That is how you know you are already crushing on someone. It's hurt and it's easy to talk, I can't stop this feeling. I wish I could..

Simply beautiful. We are indeed very small in the vast universe.
