Constellations

If there is an edge
I will want to move closer to it,
as close as I can without falling
into oblivion.

But I might
I might fall in.

If there is a chance
of fucking it up,
there’s a good chance
I’ll have to try it.

A risk, I’ll take it.
A rule, I’ll break it.
A line, I’ll cross it.

If there is a path
already paved,
I probably won’t walk it.

But if there is a night,
I will travel in its sky

and although it might be a vulnerable thing to do,
I will leave a trail of stardust for anyone who wants to see
all the places I got lost
traveled too far in the wrong direction
tried too hard for worn-out affection
fizzled and burned
a fallen star
a missed connection
a web of constellations

a zig here
a zag there

and all the other ways
that add up to me
always managing
to find my way
back to you.
