Shooting Stars With Words
by Chris Mackey

You say you want to change. Are you just derranged?
I think you feel the pain that I felt then.
Do you even care? Or am I just a novelty to wear?
 Don't expect me to share you with them now.
So our words will be the shooting stars tonight.
And everything's alright if I'm with you.
So I'll wish upon these blasted stars that you will never be that far again.
I might fall again. Fall for you.
Well, I think you're worth the chance of a second failed romance.
Just ignore their chants that beckon you.
Please keep me close to heart.
 never want to be apart from this love and this night.
