the lady in a hat

How can you know
that I am lonely
when I say 'good night'?
How can we live
when we only
see the outer shell,
when we are far away?
In our galaxies
full of stardust,
illuminated with ourselves
and all the medals on our shelves.
I wish we could only see
this, all this, everything.
This diamond deep below the sea.
