An Unlovable PlanetA forgotten planet, longing for a permanent guest, reeks with only temporary transients. She aches for the neverending heaven on Earth. Life itself has harmed her, but it’s also what keeps her alive and well. She remembers what it felt like to have warmth and life. She also remembers the death, pain, and loneliness that followed. The hope that visitors of the wasteland brings only superficial love as they will depart soon enough. Listening for a sign, listening for life, she waits for an everlasting, forever source of happiness. Maybe, just maybe, the abandoned planet will be loved once again.
