I always end up falling for people who love stargazing.


Maybe it’s because

I see the sky like a warning.


Maybe it’s because

at good times for stargazing

I am looking forward,

I run on burning concrete so I don’t feel numb.


Maybe it’s because

those stars are too bright to hear my voice

so I sneak it in between the voids

when I’m lying in your arms

looking up.


I always end up falling for stargazers.


Maybe it’s because

I’m always looking down,

afraid of slipping,

terrified of the gravity


that will catch me if I take a risk.

I Love Stargazing

Have an unused telescope under two years of dust. Maybe I'll break it out! - allets -
