You can never go far, chasing a star.
It burns you, tears you apart.
If you are lucky, you can make some art.
Yet a star feels harsh on the skin,
it sears from within.
Never let your eyes stare,
at its glare, lest you have enough air,
to breathe and live.
For the light it gives,
is painfully sweet,
and tastes of defeat.
-if you catch it, it’s worth it
