by Sam Ray
When you’re on top of the world
but still shattered
People mistake you for shooting stars instead of broken matter
But does it matter?
They don’t see where you fall after the beautiful light streak
To them, shooting stars are just lucky
The burnout into nonexistence
So I guess, make a wish.
