Waiting for a Star to Fall

I don’t know about you, but when nostalgia hits me, it’s always accompanied by a bittersweet feeling. Waiting for a Star to Fall, a song by Boy Meets Girl, captures emotion I can hardly explain. The sweetness, the pain, the love, and loss. Do you have a song that cures and hurts you at the same time?

Here’s mine.


I’m stating the obvious but Boy Meets Girl, Waiting for a Star to Fall is one of my top favorites songs, which is also inspired me to write β€œSo Close Yet So Far” micro-fiction.

PS: Can I please ask you a favor and readΒ my poemΒ titled:Β Not PerfectΒ over at Online Book Club? If you like it, please vote for my entry. Thank you.

Edit: I feel like this contest is all a dirty business trick. In the private view, I people’s vote to my poem isn’t counted because they haven’t “verified” their email. What the hell is the point of this contest if everyone who voted is mandated to sign up first? It’s all a dirty business trick.

I withdraw it from there and share in my substack blog.

    1. Thank you so much Simon. For voting and for making me aware that this contest is a piece of shit. Your vote along with 12 other people isn’t counted because they “haven’t verified” their email. Please don’t bother signing up if you don’t feel to.

      I asked my husband to vote just to check what happens and he also got the link, but even upon clicking it, the vote wasn’t counted. What the hell is the point of this contest if everyone who can vote is mandated to sign up first. It’s all a dirty business trick.
