Dark Stars

Shooting stars,
Stars in the night sky,
They kill me.

Giving me hope
For nothing.

Lighting me up
And then leaving
Me in darkness
Darker than the one
I inhabited before.

I know they can’t
Really grant wishes,
But I pretended,
And I hoped.

I shouldn’t have.

It broke me,
That shooting star.
The one you saw first.

The one I couldn’t have.

The one
That never belonged to me.
