The inspiration to “Move, Stardust!”… Ever meet someone who feeds off your misery? Ever meet someone who is only happy when you’re unhappy? And, who constantly complains about his unhappiness yet does nothing about it? I unfortunately do. It’s one long conversation of self-loathing I need to listen to reluctantly every now and then. When he calls I don’t think he even knows I’m there. I think he talks to air about his never-ending everything is wrong and nobody understands me issues. And what makes it worse, is that there are ways for him to change his circumstances… yet he won’t do them. I try nonetheless. But, he only wants me to be a sad speck of stardust like him. He only wants me to be a sad speck of stardust like him.

Fine.But you still needto moveeither onwithin yourselfor out of my waybecause I need to growand get the sun I need.So I can growand keep living.I can’t turn into you.”
