falling stars

Stars fall aimlessly out of the sky

Into your clasped palms

It all feels foreign to you

Because you don’t recall

Wishing on a shooting star

And for the first time

In a while

You think

Everything will be alright

You think

Everything will work out

You believe

If things are meant to be

It’ll be

But then the darkness starts engulfing


And you’re left in a location

You can’t really leave

With ease

How can you

When the stars have fallen out of the sky

And there’s no more twinkling

And winking of the stars

The stars we once thought

Shone for hope

And shone for us

Instead it fell into our clasped palms

And burned through our flesh

And left us in the dark.
