when I think of you

a part of me

sleeps,

smothered.

and another part

awakens,

enraged.

 

every time I see a shooting star

I think of you,

stoke the embers in my heart,

and will them to find you

 

shooting star,

you burn bright through time,

passing me by,

not caring where you end up

or who you hurt,

just that you’re flying

 

but you forgot something:

shooting stars shine bright,

breaking through the heavens,

signing their name against the sky,

but what they do best is

Fall
