Like a Shooting Star

My Broken Heart

Love was a burst of light

cascading from the heavens

unto my terrestrial trail.

Romantic sparks soared

across midnight sky, colliding

with heart’s atmosphere.

But the nova overheated

and disintegrated when

it landed on heartbreak’s soil.

Rejection’s flight path was

aimed for my heart, creating

a crater in my confidence.
