Shooting stars falling from the sky
are dead stars. Lifeless
but renew hope in those who see them.
The clock on the wall shows 11:11
I close my eyes and make a wish.
My floor is littered with dandelion spores
and broken wishbones.
Countless flowers have
shed their petals – the timeless game of “he loves me”.
Fingers always crossed, deformed over time
I spent, wishing for you.
