# You're not feeling well. You need something.

You're not feeling good. Something is horribly wrong with you. You're trying hard to feign happiness, but...

...deep inside, you are hurt.
...deep inside, you know you are hated.
...deep inside, you are all alone.

Forward, and backward. The paths meet.

You need something. What's it? You should let the stars spell it out.

• @Sid Then you should solve this to find out what exactly you need :P Dec 12, 2016 at 15:17
• You're right, I DO need Pixar! Dec 12, 2016 at 15:53

I know what you need ...

We get this by ...

continuing on from where Wu33o got, and then realizing that you find where the two lines for each word intersect. The letters already provided align with a QWERTY keyboard. Find where those intersections lie on the keyboard, in the order they appear in the rhyme, and you have:
The lines for DEAD meet at $\bf{L}$
The lines for HURT meet at $\bf{O}$
The lines for HATED meet at $\bf{V}$
The lines for ALONE meet at $\bf{E}$

Image from OP: So you need LOVE.

• Of course... facepalm. Good job :) Dec 12, 2016 at 16:43
• Can you do me a big favor and add a visual please? Dec 12, 2016 at 21:18
• @Mithrandir Wu33o already provided the visual in another answer; just look where like-colored lines intersect, mentally superimpose the entire visual above your keyboard, and see which letters are at those intersecting points.

• I'm no good at mentally superimposing... Dec 12, 2016 at 21:22
• Great job all! @Mithrandir I've added an image for better visualisation; hope this makes things a bit clearer. :) Dec 13, 2016 at 4:07

Forward, and backward. The paths meet.


The four words at the end of the sentences in the poem can be found in the stars, forward and backward. We have:
ALPHA TEDGLOBAL, ODE TAHITI
TEDGLOBAL ONE-EYED, MEN OLAUDAH

When we connect these words, we get the following lines:

We can see that the places where the paths meet are all:

On the same height as at least one of the letters. The first intersection is on the height of the A, the second and fourth intersection on the height of the R, I and P, and the third intersection on the height of the X.

And that's where I'm stuck for now :(

Don't have an answer as of yet, just some observations.
