Stars

I want to believe
I can make the stars
feel an itch
from my telescope gaze
shooting
from all the way
back on Earth,

but I know
if I could glow
as brightly as they do,
I wouldn’t notice
a fly’s tiny eyes
across oceans of emptiness.

I just want to know
how to get close
without getting burned.

    Gave me high school dating flashbacks, haha. Probably not its meaning, but it did.

    I enjoyed reading this a lot. Thanks for writing it for us.
