*Wish On Me*

I flash across the night, a brilliant, dazzling streak of light barely perceptible

Unless you happen to look at just the right patch of stars

Your artificial lights drown out my brilliance

In the most crowded of cities

I cannot be seen

For you have built the night sky for yourself

I can see your stars shining bright

Its blinding , wrong, fake 

 

So if you happen to look up on a clear night

Turn off your cellphone, douse the flame

You'll see me, racing across the sky

And when you do

Would you please, just this once,

Wish on me?

*

The End
