I could orbit you forever,
like you are Saturn,
and I am an ice particle,
a speck like the other specks
you ring yourself with.

I want you to reach out
and let me streak into you:
melt me, let me rain down,
drink me up, drink me up.
I only need to be a star
falling like a papercut
across your atmosphere.

I don’t want to linger.
Just to fall into and for you,
so fast you will only notice
if you keep your eyes on me
and never blink.

Keep a wish ready.
I can only fall for you once.
