we cannot begin to fathom our emotions
as we struggle to breathe
and forget all our trials
we disregard their judgemental glances
and focus on the wonder of our affection
this star dust is keeping us alive
as we dance and dream in the night
we fall in love with the moment
this instant of splendor.
we are shooting stars in the evening sky -
they wish upon us
but tomorrow they forget that we existed
until their dreams all come true
and then they wonder at our beauty.
