I am looking for a short story that is probably really old (30 years+) and I only remember the rough plot like this:
Several astronauts (I think it was multiple, but possibly it could have been only one) are returning from their trip to space. After having seen the stars, life on earth seems boring and mundane to them. They yearn to go back and see the stars once more and struggle to deal with life on earth. Quite possibly, they even harm themselves (not sure about that part).
I remember the story to be about the void that is now left in them and the psychological effect this return to an everyday life has on them after having experienced something extraordinary.
I have considered if this might be "The rocket man", but am not convinced that is the one.
