Vibrant streaks of green and blue and violet twist in your eyes, like a
beautiful galaxy and I want nothing more than to catch each shooting star and leave my wishes on your lips.
I'm not sure that this is a poem but rather a pretty thought. It was written in 2016.

I will forever wish I was a girl of honey and glass like the one you sang about when you watched as she skipped down the boardwalk with the most breathtaking smile painted across her lips. But no matter the number of shooting stars I wish upon i remain the girl of smoke and tears, while she sweeps the world off its feet. It's not envy that fills my eyes, admiration neither. but a longing, a hope that one day i'm not "less than".

A.C.
inspired by the "honey and glass" tiktok song.

Indeed, she’s a
once-in-a-lifetime
shooting star;
fleeting, cutting
through the
night sky.

What joy to
have seen
such fire.
What misery
to know she
will never
be mine.
Once-in-a-lifetime

Back then I thought I proceed so slow
Make it later but right now no
But then I look at my long life and I see
I got many years proceeding with speed
In the moment I'm bored it's so slow
But once it's done it passed I grow
My life passed by fast I know
Show me what I can't see, let's go
Impress me with time make it speed by
God you have it all I try
I proceed so slow present time
But so fast on the timeline
Shooting star speed of light
I take flight fall through the sky
Back in time young star I shine
Everything is mine
I proceed but I compete with time
Time beats me I fell out of line
Present day white dwarf
A star sunk in it's core
I still have the ability to shine
A star in the sky about to die
Then I fall to Earth and collide
Nothing on this planet is mine
Back then I thought I proceed so slow
Make it later but right now no
But then I look at my long life and I see
I got many years proceeding with speed
In the moment I'm bored it's so slow
But once it's done it passed I grow
My life passed by fast I know
Show me what I can't see, whoa

My eyelashes are shooting stars,
least appreciated for their beauty.
Much trusted for their
'Wish fulfilment'.

there will come a time when love arrives as a shooting star
striking through my chest
as i topple over and fall to the floor
giggling and laughing with tears forming at the corner of my eyes
as stardust fills my lungs
and when that time comes
i know
i'll be here forever.
and ever and ever and ever.

You can't see the light because you are the light. So don't worry about your scars.
They'll heal as you fly across the sky like a shooting star.
Don't forget the night doesn't last forever even in the land of the midnight sun. As long as you show up half the battle has been won
