They told me to wish upon a shooting star

So I watched the sunrise
Until the gooey warmth stuck to my bones
A halo of fire surrounding my head
My site covered in a kaleidoscope of color
Redgreenpurpleblueorangeyellow
Staining God's willed colors into something new

But I kept watching
Because you have to watch the whole thing they say
To make your wish become something real

And finally my chosen star
Fell onto the oceans waves
Painting iloveyous onto the water
Reflections and imperfections so faultless
Sunshine moments blinding my words

My lips were dry and silent
While nighttime embraced me
Trembling in the darkening grass
Mouthed wishes circling my head

But in the end
Everyone's a liar
