The shooting star falls to Earth
Bringing messages of hope and destruction
“It’s happened before,” she says
And turns towards me
And looks into my eyes
So glorious in the inevitability of everything
There is no pain in the end
There is no Good, No Evil
Not even a place between
“It’s what it is,” she says
And turns away from me
And looks into the sky
Where the star used to be
Where a new one will one day form
Where now there is nothing, and yet . . .
Everything comes together
We reach our hands, already intertwined
In, then out, then up, then down
“It will never be the same,” she says
And we turn away
And find each other again
In another place
In another time
And reach out for our stars
“That will be 1 Faith, pls.”
-Here you go.
“Sorry, your Faith is no good here.”
-Oh! Just turn it over...see?
“Ah! Well and good then! Apologies: it is not often we find such a token."
-Of course. Enjoy the view.
