As I was looking up at the stars tonight, I realized you were a shooting star.
Just like how it unexpectedly flashes across the dark night sky, you had unexpectedly entered my life. And as you appeared there was a sudden difference in the darkness; everything seemed brighter and more magical and I even wished upon you as your radiance graced my presence. My heart felt lighter and there was a feeling of excitement and the possibility of new promises to be made and even the tingling glimpses of the future.
But as you are a shooting star, naturally you cannot stay.
As the light fades into the darkness you slowly disappeared from my life. But as I blink there are traces of light, phantom shadows still lingering among the black canopy, and I can still see you, I can still feel you - your silhouette and your warmth and the feeling of your hand in mine.
But you are no longer there. You have walked out as abruptly as you had came, leaving nothing but empty darkness, unfulfilled futures and broken promises.
